TBS DT: Happy Birthday

Hey there crafty folks! I hope you had a great weekend. This week the Beary Scrap design team is showing more samples for our current Sketch Challenge & Blog Candy. On Thursday our next Guest Designer is sharing her first project with us. I can't wait to see what Lori Leng of Pinkcloud Scrappers will show us first! At the end of the week Jamie will usher in a new challenge and we will announce our winners on Sunday the 17th. We have a busy week in store for you!

I've gone whimsical and cute for this week's project. I knew I wanted to color my new Balloon Kaylee stamp and went poking through my papers to find a good match. Lo and behold I found the cutest My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup papers. I forgot I had them!

I combined 2 lines from My Mind's Eye - Alphabet Soup for the papers and Tickled Pink for the ric-rac and brad inside the big flower. I love how these 2 lines coordinate!

Kaylee is layered and I'm still decided whether to use Star Dust Stickles on either the headband or balloon. It seems needed up there, but I'm not sure which to do. What do you think?

Oh, and the "Happy Birthday" stamp included with Kaylee will go on the inside panel.It's just, um, not quite finished. :)

Challenges, Please
  • Some Odd Girl (7/13) - Bright and Blinding (Er... I'd say this is vibrant, but maybe not blinding...)

I think your card is perfect, with or without any more stickles!
I love the way you sew the edges in different colours and of course your pins looks FABULOUS!
Have a great week :)
Hugs, Jill
