Hoppy Birthday Challenge


Yes, I know I'm suppose to be getting ready to leave for D.C. tonight, but I had to make one card this morning before I left. As if I won't be getting enough crafting in at the CTMH convention, LOL. House Mouse and Friends Challenge with week was Happy Birthday and I needed to make a card for a friend anyhow, so why not knock a couple of things off my list in one card.


I used Cherry-O paper from Close To My Heart, organza ribbon, a couple of pretty pins from CTMH, of course my little birthday bunny stamp from House Mouse, and some of my brand new spellbinders I just got in the mail. The spellbinders are label nine and they are awesome as their so big. I embossed the background pink with my cuddlebug and layered and layered and layered with my favorite, foam tape from CTMH. I love the overall girly look for this card without being to fru-fru.


Here are the challenges this card qualifies for:

One Stitch At a Time : Ribbon, Bows are Lace
Crafty Creations : Cake and Ice Cream
Crafty Cardmakers: Inky Fingers
Charisma Cardz- Metal (stick pin)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts : Nice and Girly
