Birthday Bug

     This is such a silly image but since this seems to be the month to get my stash of birthday cards built up again, I had to use it right away.  Every January, I update my calendar with all the family and friend's birthday and anniversary dates and that makes me realize that my stock of cards is practically depleted so I start making them again.   This image came from Sasayaki Glitter and is part of their Progressive Challenge series.


I started with the sketch from Outlawz.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  I cut a mat for it from purple CS with another die from that same set.  The sentiment is framed with a die cut (also Spellbinders) and I used purple (my favorite color, of course!) satin ribbon from my stash.  I found a scrap bit of sheer purple ribbon for the bow.  The purple and blue background paper is embossed and sparkly but that isn't really visible in the photo.

     Challenges:
Crafty Creations
Fab n Funky
Inspiration Destination
Kraftin' Kimmie
Paper Shelter
Penny's Paper-Crafty
Scrapy Land
Sugar Pea Designs

     Tomorrow I'll have another DT card for QKR Stampede and you won't want to miss that one.  You know how QKR images bring out the 'weird' in my sense of humor.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
