Happy Birthday-Tin Can Chat-PP246and CMCC No72 ,Seize the Birthday

May 24, 2015

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend and finding time to do something you enjoy!  We have been very busy with our family this weekend!  Lake time and boating is always lots of fun for us!

It's Sunday and time for another challenge at The Paper Players!  We loved all your beautiful "Girly" cards last week and can't wait to see what you create with our sketch!  The amazing Anne Marie is our hostess this week! 

A huge welcome to our new Guest Designers!  We are so excited to have them play along with us each week!  WELCOME, Jodi, Lisa and Amy!!!!!

I thought the colors at the Colour Me challenge were perfect for my card and since it is a birthday card, I can play along with Seize the Birthday, too!

My card was created using a favorite stamp set from SugarPea Designs-Tin Can Chat!  I adore this set!  I remember making these little tin can phones out of soup cans as a child!  I really thought they worked!  LOL!  

My base card is Whisper White (5 1/2 X 4 1/4).  The next layer is Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4).  I used the Heidi Swapp Dot Stencil, Bermuda Bay ink and sponged it with daubers.  I added a 1 inch strip of Bermuda Bay Paper and a 3/4" strip of Whisper White on top of it.  I stamped the little girl on white and colored her with a variety of Copic Markers.  I cut it out with a stitched circle die.  I then added the Happy Birthday sentiment from the SugarPea Designs-SeaSide Wishes stamp set in black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I popped it up with dimensional tape.  I found these little flowers by Making Memories-Mini Blossoms in my stash and added the brad and attached them with a glue dot to complete the sketch.
