Blogger's Challenge

Happy Friday again!

Here are some ideas that I worked on this week. First is my blogger's challenge cards.

Our challenge this week is to make birthday themed cards. No specific layout. Since I was out of birthday cards, I thought that I would make a few. So here is an assortment of birthday cards made using the Birthday Whimsey stamp set.
I used groovy gauva as the background for one, so saffron for the second and wild wasabi for the third.


This next card is a case of the card on page 21 of the catalog. I substituted Riot of Petals for the hostess set From the Garden. Riot of Petals is stamped with groovy gauva ink and layered onto so saffron and groovy gauva cardstock. I used a piece of ginger blossom paper and gold brads along the bottom with rose grosgrain ribbon.
