Multiple Cards for Multiple Challenges
Hello everyone. Hope your weekend is going well. So far so good here, even had some sun today but tomorrow we're supposed to see some showers. I actually played in my room most of the day, which is just the way I like it!! lol I worked on cards again, but hopefully I'll be able to spend some time in there tomorrow and work on some layouts. The first card here is for 3 challenges, all birthday themes. The challenges are for Birthday Sundaes, anything goes; More Than Favors, birthday anything goes, and Celebrate the Occasion, anything goes with a flower. I used Recollection cardstock for the card base, and both mats. The pp is from DCWV Celebration stack which is perfect for birthdays. The sentiment mat was cut with my new Nestabilities die. The elephant stamp was one I found in the dollar bin at Michael's and with "Water for Elephants" getting ready to come out, I couldn't resist!! If you haven't read the book, you need to, and of course, see the movie! I colored it with my Stampin' Up water color pencils and added Stickles to the balloons and the hat was colored with a Martha Stewart's glitter marker. The ribbon is from Michael's, the flower is a sticker from Walmart, and the buttons were from my stash. I used some embroidery floss from my stash too. The sentiment stamp is from a Scrappy Mom's stamp set.
