I Love Making Birthday Cards!

Yup, I do! :D I love to send (and receive of course) Birthday cards so I am always in need of them, that's why. :)

I had a really busy weekend. I didn't get to craft much. I finally went to traffic school this past Saturday. It was actually okay, it wasn't as boring as I thought it would be. I actually enjoyed. I learned quite a few things. Then on Sunday, I went to that stamp show in Carson. It wasn't what I expected but I did get a couple of things. My hubby went with me because he wanted to see what it's like. Well, it's only fair that he did since I usually go to the jewelry shows with him in Vegas. Anyway, on to this card....

I bought this WOJ stamp a little while ago and haven't really gotten a chance to ink it. I love WOJ stamps too. It's the style I love actually. I have a few more so you will be seeing them soon too. :D

I didn't intend to cut the image out originally but because I messed up while using the Cuttlebug, I cut it out and so the whole layout was different than what I had in mind.

This card is for the following challenges:

1. Whiff Of Joy: the sketch.
2. Cute Daisy May: Three of a kind. I have three of the same flowers.
3. Stamp Something: Color combo - pink, green, yellow
4. Crystal's Crafty Creations: My blogging friend, Crystal is celebrating her 10,000 hit and she is having a blog candy with a twist. All you have to do is be a follower and leave her a comment that you've linked her candy. For a second chance, make a celebration card. Check it out! And while you are there, check out her blog! She got some really beautiful, inspirational creations! You won't be disappointed!!


Paper: Nana's Kids' stack, DCWV spring stack

Stamps; WOJ, Hero Arts

Embellishment: Ribbon, gems

Tools: Flower punch, fern leave punch, Le Plume markers, Copic, Cuttlebug, embossing folder
