Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone.  I hope my American friends are enjoying their Thanksgiving celebrations - I expect you'll all be off to the Black Friday shopping hauls.  I hope you find lots of bargains.

Today I wanted to share a Birthday card with you.  It's Shannon's birthday next week and I wanted to make a card that her sister Emily could give her.


I used an image that is on the Polka Doodles CD Double Sprinkles of Kraft, the sentiment is also on this fabulous CD.  So many images, digital stamps, pre-coloured images, papers, sentiments you name it's got it. I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs and the sentiment was already pre-coloured.


I added two ribbons and was lucky enough to find two in my stash that were the perfect colours to match the image.  I embossed the purple layer with my Cuttlebug and one of the folders from the Once Upon a Princess set.  I popped up the image and sentiment layers to add a bit of depth.


So, don't forget I want to see all your shopping hauls and to see what fabulous bargains you got.

Entering this card in the following challenges.

  6. Adorable card! I love those colors together and such a cute image too! A perfect birthday card. I had a great Thanksgiving--way too much food and I never to the Black Friday shopping. Too much craziness for me! Thanks for joining us at The Stamping Shack Challenge!

  7. No bargians for me-just out early to replace my son's cell phone which he broke yesterday. Very cute stamp which you've colored beautifully. Lovely card as usual.

  8. Beautiful colors, Karon, the ribbons match perfect & the embossing is a great touch. Good luck in the challenges you've entered.
    As for "Black Friday", I figured staying home, crafting would be an even better bargain :):):) HaHa and I'm sure my husband agrees, since I didn't drag him out of bed at midnight to go shopping ;)
    Hug,
