Birthday Wishes

I was busy today working on the Easter cards for my Husband's clients when I decided I needed to take a break. I decided to try to enter some more challenges and came up with this design.

This card falls under the requirements for a few challenges this week/month at various blogs, and I am excited to enter it and see what happens. Don't forget to click the links below to check out the Challenges at these blogs, I know they would love for you to have a look.
  • At Simply Magnolia the challenge is to use Kraft paper and incorporate 2 more colours along with of course a Magnolia Stamp. I used the Kraft paper to layer under my patterned paper, one of the butterflies and the border around the circle piece. My two colours are a darker brown and a minty blue. 
  • At Tilda's Town Challenge #94 is to use things from your stash which of course was no problem as let me tell you….I have a big stash of stuff that I have accumulated LOL! 
  • Stamp and Create with Magnolia's challenge #26 is to use a birthday theme and magnolia stamp. 
  • Anything goes at the Marvelous Magnolia Challenge #62, so this card works well for their challenge as well. 
  • At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge the theme is Tick Tock. The design is to be anything time inspired. 
  • 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #94 is anything goes and to use a stamped image that they carry in their store.
  • Kit and Clowder's Challenge for March is Wings. So as I have butterflies on my card I figure I got the "wings" thing covered.
