Birthday Bash

Paper Garden is having a Birthday Bash celebration, complete with 4 challenges. Here are my entries:

Humorous Card Challenge

This sweet, happy Kewpie seems oblivious to the chirping contest going on between his feathered friends. I think they are more interested in outchirping each other than in following his direction. It just makes me smile. :)

This is the first time I've used this music note Cuttlebug folder. I love how it looks sanded with white core paper (DCWV). Cool!

Add a Flower Challenge

I used a floral paper as well as a flower embellishment for this entry. Another Kewpie from Crafty Secrets stamps.

Just Say Thanks Challenge

I love this Changito monkey stamp from Stampendous! It was a birthday present from Dean and the girls.

Its in the Background Challange

I had barely used this circle stamp set from The Angel Company (TAC) and never thought to use it to make a background. I *love* how it turned out! I am definitely going to be making more background paper with it. That's what I love about challenges - they really help me to think "out of the box" and try new things.
