Birthday Bird-Day Wishes

It's Wednesday already. 

Watch for a big announcement and some changes to my blog coming soon. I am so excited, but can't share them with you just yet, but soon!

Now to today's project - I have two more challenges to check off my list. Today it is a Birthday Wishes card for Our Creative Corner - Get Wordy Challenge, 
Celebrate the Occassion Challenge, and Frosted Designs FabulousFriday Challenge.

This one was fun. The Fabulous Friday was NO PATTERNED PAPER. The Wordy challenge was to use a sentiment stamp to create a background or layer on your card by stamping it repeatedly.


I just got a new stamp set from Stampin' Up over the weekend, So Happy for You. So I used the Birthday Wishes stamp from it to stamp the blue background in brown ink. The banner cut with bird is from the Birthday Bash cart including the card background with scallop edge. 

Here's how I did it... 
All paper is Bazzill from my scrap stash- just love using up all these scraps :)
Base card cut at 8.5: wide x 5.5" tall from Birthday Bash cart, p.39
   Used my Gypsy to size to the dimensions above.
Bird on flags and layers cut at 3.18" from Birthday Bash cart, p. 39
Birthday Wishes Sentiment on card front from Stampin Ups So Happy for You Stamp set
Sentiment on inside of card from My Pink Stamper Tweetie Hoo Puns stamp set

Love this! I love the idea of multi-stamping an image to create your own designer paper. I'll have to give this a try sometime.
