Time to Celebrate...

My card this time works for four different challenges!  Not sure how I managed that one, but I did!  Anyway the challenges are:  EtsyInspired, Waltzingmouse, Sentimental Sundays and a brand spankin' new challenge called Birthday Sundaes.  Birthday Sundaes is a challenge devoted solely to helping us get those birthday cards done!  I found Birthday Sundaes through my bloggy friend, Michelle, who is also on the design team.  Make sure you check them out!



The EtsyInspired shop this week is Dollbirdies, a place you can find all kinds of wonderful handmade fabric items like wristlets, camera bags and passport holders.   My card is based on a beautiful wristlet done in grey and white.   The layout is based on the current Waltzingmouse sketch.  I have wanted to try making a card using a banner and this week's layout gave me that chance.   The challenge at Sentimental Sundays was to make your sentiment the main focus of your card.  Hopefully that was accomplished on this card!  And the Birthday Sundaes challenge is "anything goes" just make sure you have a birthday related sentiment on your card.   So... whew!  That's alot for one little card!  Stamps are from Waltzingmouse and Hero Arts.  I used a little image from the WMS set Victorian Frippery to make the banner and an image from Very Vintage Labels 4.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; PP:  SU! Night & Day; Stamps:  WMS Very Vintage Labels 4 & Victorian Frippery, Hero Arts Find Joy; Ink:  Ancient Page Stone Grey & Memento Tuxedo Black; Spellbinders Label 4 dies; Martha Stewart Butterfly punch; Zva Creative pearls; Ranger Old Paper distress ink
