Birthday Wishes

Hello there!  I am back with another card to share with you.  Lisa and I decided to give it one last go at playing together in a challenge before school started back up and my life got a little crazy again.  We decided to do two out of the three challenges that I have used on my card.  I had to sneak the third in there.  Ha!


This pretty set from Flourishes is called Lenten Rose.  I chose to use this one because it looked like it would be fun to color with my new TH Distress markers, and it sure was.  I love those things!


I did something I haven't done in a long time...I combined a few challenges together on one card.  I always feel guilty about doing this, but there are so many great challenges out at one time and I wanted to play along with all of them.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week is to use a die cut.  What girl doesn't have some die laying around?  This girl sure does.  I have fishtail, circle and scalloped border dies on this card.

I used the color inspiration from Stampin' Royalty.  I loved these colors and decided to use the main patterned paper on my card because of the pattern on the pillow in the graphic.


Also, CASE study has a great challenge right now, this was my original starting point for my card.  It is neat to see how many different takes there are on this challenge.  The girls on the design team all have something totally different.  I was inspired to use the flowers and circle die cut because because of the inspiration photo.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Make sure to stop by Lisa's Blog and see what she has created for you.

Your card looks beautiful. I don't think there is anything wrong with entering this in more than one challenge.

Wow, Heather! I LOVE your coloring on the image! That was all Distress markers? I've put off getting them, except for the black and the white ones, but I might need to re-think that now. Gorgeous! And, I've often combined challenges. It's fun to try to find ways to put several of them together in one card!
