Blogger's Challenge Birthday Card

Hi everyone! I'm a little behind the 8-ball this week. I just got back from a wonderful couple of days with some dear neighbor friends of ours up in Ossipee Lake, NH! What a great time: great views, kayaking, sitting by the campfire at night, tubing... check out a couple of the photos!



Anywho, welcome back to my blog! Today's Blogger's Challenge was to create a birthday card. Since I'm in love with the new Sunny Garden DSP, I created a card using the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set and that bea-u-ti-ful paper!!


Don't you just love the bright new Poppy Parade paper? IRL, this is quite bright and festive! My 3 faves in one DSP pack: Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait! I think the card is self-explanatory -- 2 coordinating pieces of the DSP, mounted on a Daffodil Delight card base, "wrapped up" with the luscious Daffodil Delight satin ribbon, mounted on an Old Olive scrap. I used the ticket corner punch and some gold brads to add a little "pizzazz"! The cupcake and "wrapper" were colored in using the Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight ink pads with a blender pen.

Don't forget!! Sunday is my Open House if you live anywhere close to Boston and can make it! It's also TAX-FREE WEEKEND in Massachusetts this Saturday and Sunday!! Click here to connect to my online store if there's anything on your wishlist (like this wonderful DSP! Hint, hint...!) It's also a great time to get a Big Shot and save on the tax too!

Thanks for visiting!

This card is darling Jeannie. I agree the new colors are great and this is really nice DSP. Your trip up north sounds sooo nice. We are hoping to go camping next weekend on the cape. I hope we have good weather and can get away before the summer ends. Enjoy!

Delightful card. Love the Poppy color (need to get that one) and yet again another delicious looking cupcake. It's a good thing you don't gain weight just by looking at food!
Sounds like you had a marvelous time camping.

That paper is gorgeous. So glad you had a wonderful trip!

Cute card....and you've used my favorite birthday stamp set! I'm getting used to that DSP....was so upset to see it disappear in the purple tones that I wasn't at all sure I'd like the new. Guess I'm fickle, huh?!!
