Another birthday card for my stash! The Designed to Color gals are having a birthday celebration event on Facebook. Day 2's challenge was to make a card using 3 elements in a row from this tic-tac-toe:
I chose the elements Balloon, Banner and Aqua. I knew my Birdie Brown Party Dog image would be perfect, along with this fun MME Lime Twist paper and gorgeous Tiffany Blue cardstock from Paper and More.
I don't have a banner stamp or die cut, so I fashioned my own template from a piece of scrap paper and used it to cut my own banners (which are diamond shapes folded in half over a piece of Doodlebug baker's twine).
Other than fiddling with the banner (this was my first time making one), this card was quick to put together. I just love coloring in this image and use it for birthday cards whenever I can. :)
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Pile It On - Happy Birthday
CAS on Sunday - Happy Birthday
The Ribbon Girl - use ribbon or twine (I used both)
Craft Your Passion - Banners
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks - Mothers Day or Birthday
Charisma Cards - use at least 5 different DPs (I have 2 on my card base and used 3 different DPs for my banners)
Now I am off to make dinner, which is decidedly less fun than making cards! I'll be back later this week with some Mothers Day and Easter cards, as well as a new Totally Papercrafts Challenge on Thursday. See you then!
