*Another Birthday Card*

I typically don't make a lot of occasion specific cards... I like to keep them "open" so that I can use them for absolutely anything.  Otherwise they tend to just sit there for a while not getting used.

But, the Crazy4Challenges blog has had a challenge for the last week for birthday cards, so most of the cards I've made this week have been birthday cards.

Now to get back into the habit of sending birthday cards to people!!  I've been terrible about it in the last year or so.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PaperTreyInk; Stampin' Up! Basic Black
*Images:  Stampabilities; Imaginisce
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Rocket Red Brilliance; Copic Markers
*Tools:  Corner Chomper
*Embellishments:  American Crafts Ribbon; unknown brad; Stickles
*Challenges:  SC262; C4C19

Yup, two challenges again....  last weeks' Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and the Crazy4Challenges challenge.

And I used my Copics again!  I'm trying!!!

My favourite part of this card?  I love how the Stickles look on the bath bubbles.... gives an iridescent sheen that's just perfect!

I think it is so neat that you post for a challenge whether on time or not...just cuz you like to! this stamp has to be the cutest ever. matched with that gorgeous sentiment stamp...just beautiful. isn't papertrey's card stock the best? TFS.
