Simon Says Stamp Challenge...Birthday Challenge...Happy B-day!!


Good morning stampin' friends! Time for another fun challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenges! I can't believe how many entries we had for our "Anything Goes" challenge last week! That was absolutely incredible...not sure if we got over 1000 or not but pretty darn close!!!!! Thank you all so much for sharing your beautiful creations with us! Hopefully you can join us again this week! The challenge is another easypeasy one....Happy Birthday....and we can always use another birthday card or two in our card box, now can't we!? 

We have another fabulous 50 dollar gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Superstore up for grabs this week! Just think of all the goodies you can get with 50 dollars...whoo hooo!!!!!! All you have to do is join the challenge to be entered into the random draw!

So for my card this week I followed the fabulous sketch that they have at Friday Sketchers # 145 and then I inked up one of the stamps from my new The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Lounge stamp set, that I got from...guess where...yuppers, Simon Says Stamps Superstore, he, he ,he!!! My daughter, Hannah, was wearing her cute black Uggs the other day and this Miss Anya reminds me of I though I would inked her up! I stamped her on my new Copic Xpress It blending cardstock with Memento ink Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with my Copics. I'm still getting use to this paper as I have been using Neenah for a while now but I think I like it! I just need a little more practice with it! It is very slick...kind of like the Prism Simply Smooth paper that I used before I switched to Neenah. Not sure I am happy with how her hair turned out but you know what they say.... practice makes perfect,smile! I cut the image out with my Oval Nesties and inked with Spun Sugar Distess ink. 

I used BasicGrey Olivia 6x6 papers and American Crafts cardstock and the velvet ric rac is also by American Crafts. I used a BG Olivia Canvas tag and added a rub-on "smile" that I had in my stash to the centre of it. I added some beautiful Prima flowers with BG painted brads and I stamp a sentiment from a My Favorite Things sentiment set on a QuicKutz tag. to finish it off I sprinkled a few gems here and there. 

Here is the inside...I used a sentiment from a new More Essential Sentiment set from My Favorite Things. I also added some more Prima flowers and more bling. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my Simon Says Stamp Birthday challenge card! I really hope you can join us! Please stop by the challenge blog and see all the gorgeous creations the DT have to inspire you too, then join us!

Love your fabric flower & how the green centre is echoed in the green brads of your layered flowers - & how there are little flowers in similar colours in that base background paper. Love her boots too.
