#748 – Birthdays are a Hoot

Hello and welcome! Today I have the honor and pleasure to be present at two challenge blogs.. Its a new challenge at Seize the Birthday, and I am also Guest Designing at CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

At Seize the Birthday, we have ‘Anything Goes’ challenge, which means any birthday themed project goes! And here’s the sketch for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge –


Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

And here’s the card I made –


I used the cute little owls from Lil Inker Designs Hootie Patootie stamp set. They are just so adorable!!! I colored them using Faber Castell oil pastels, fuzzy cut them. I cut out a panel of olive green card stock using Neat & Tangled Scalloped die, which I then embossed using Spellbinders Flora embossing folder. I then foam mounted the panel over a white card base, then foam mounted the critters, clouds, balloons, and sentiment on top.

I hope you enjoyed my card. And I hope you find time to join both the challenges – they are totally fun. You can find more inspiration at the CAS(E) This Sketch blog and the Seize the Birthday blog, where we are joined by our Surprise Party Guest, Kimberly Lackenbach!

Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
