A late Blogger's Challenge 35 Card


I am late with this. I am so sorry. The challenge for this week was to use Brilliant Blue, Old Olive and Purely Pomegranate. I thought I would make this difficult challenge a little harder by making it a double challenge and mixing it with the SCS challenge to use your own handwriting on a card front. So when I stamped the star I omitted the part that said Happy and wrote in You are a...the word star is a iron on that I found at the dollar store. I covered the star that was on the iron on with the paper layered one I made instead. Fun and bright, my kind of card. My son will be using this for a Birthday party he has to go to today.

Stamp Sets Used: In the Stars (this will be available in the next mini from SU)
Paper Colors: Brilliant Blue, Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate and Basic Black
Inks: Brilliant Blue, Old Olive and Purely Pomegranate
Other: Iron On, white gel pen and markers.

I will be back soon with some more posts. Today is my birthday and I will be doing a birthday give away. Also I have a few RAK's to share from some friends and I won some awesome Blog Candy on Barb's Blog so I need to show you that too! Don't go too far.
