Bloggers Challenge #34


Happy Friday!! Here is my very first Bloggers Challenge card! I am very excited to join this very talented group of ladies!! You can click on the 'Bloggers Challenge' button to the left and visit their blogs!! Today's challenge was to use the layout from the Birthday card on page 42 of the Spring/Summer 2008 Stampin' Up catty. I had a really hard time getting started on this, I think because the layout seemed a little simple for me. I really liked the final card though...thanks for the challenge!!! I have a hard time with lots of "empty space", so I just had to add the rhinestones at the bottom, and "ink" the edges of the white. I've also realized that I have a hard time with square corners and have felt the need to either round all my corners or use my Ticket corner punch. I took my Chocolate Chip marker and out little "dots" in the scallops of the border. Thanks for coming over and checking out my card! Have an amazing weekend!
Supplies used:
Stamps: Friendship Blooms and Itty Bitty Backgrounds both sets by Stampin Up!
Paper: Blue Raspberry by Deja Views; Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstocks by SU!

Accesssories: Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Light Blue round brads, Flower Fusion felt flower,
