Three Clover's Thrusday Challenge---3ctc6

Here we are at the sixth week of Kerry's new challenges. This weeks is special for a few reasons.

  1. Number one we are making birthday cards for Kerry! She is such a "fool" her birthday is on April 1st! So the challenge is to use her favorite color--purple, her favorite embellishment--glitter and of course it has to be a birthday card. Pretty fun!

  2. Kerry is offering a prize for this week in honor of her birthday! You can win a yummy paper pack from Basic Grey. It is the 6x6 Sugared Pad!

    So what are you waiting for take a quick look at my sample--leave me a super kind comment--(smile) and get going on your own sample. When you are done be sure to leave your direct link on Mr. Linky at the end of Kerry original post HERE!

    Here is my sample.......

You can't see it on the picture but the white circles on the background are glittered along with a few spots on the purple and the frosting on the cake. There are rhinestones on the flames and glitter paper in the background layer of the cake. I may have "overdone" the purple thing but what the heck it was fun!

Stamps: Fun And Fast Notes, Think Happy Thoughts
Paper: Lovely Lilac, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, MS dp, glitter paper by kodak
Ink: Basic Black, Elegant eggplant
Other: cuttlebug folder, glitter pens, markers, copics, white gel pen, Elegant Eggplant ribbon, lots of mini rhinestones (cuz Kerry is old, lol)

Be sure to head on over to Kerry's blog to see what the rest of the inspiration team did, there are some fabulous cards over there!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving those comments, lol!
