Oops! (Belated Birthday)

** Winner at The Paper Makeup Stamps Blog! **

Hi everyone! This is my last challenge as guest designer with Card Mania Challenges and I'd like to thank them again for these fun-filled three months! It sure has gone by fast! I'm proud to share my inspiration project for CMC #58 - Buttons! Come play with us - we want to see some buttons on your project! We're being sponsored this time by Milk Coffee Stamps!

I chose the absolutely adorable Tiffany and Birthday Cake for my belated birthday card. Aren't these papers just the yummiest ever?! I always color my image and then match my papers (I know... bass ackwards) and was literally sucked into this pad of double-sided K & Co. papers! Double-sided papers have become another addiction! ;)

I matted all the paper elements on the front on gorgeous deep burgundy textured cardstock. Several weekends ago I made some shrinky dink floral elements with my heat tool and used one of them on this card. I added some pink wrinkled ribbon with a triple loop bow, and the required buttons for the challenge, and that was it!

On the inside, I did something out of the ordinary - I sponged a couple light pink inks over a square/oval stencil and then stamped the inside belated sentiment in the center of it. Kind of neat, huh?!

I'd love to enter my belated birthday card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; Bozo cardstock from the  DCWV Reds multi-stack
  • K & Co. Que Sera Sera double-sided 12x12 papers
  • Milk Coffee Stamps Tiffany and Birthday Cake digital image
  • Copics: E00/35/37/51, C5, Y17/21, V15, R81/85, RV25
  • GKD Birthday Greetings stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black and Love Letter ink
  • Ranger Spun Sugar distress ink
  • Clear Wink of Stella
  • Buttons from stash
  • Prairie Bird Boutique pink wrinkled ribbon
  • Darcie's Vintage Trinkets clip art

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you've found a little inspiration to create a project for our buttons challenge! And be sure to check out all the fun digital images at the Milk Coffee Stamps Etsy store! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
