613 Avenue Create Challenge #21 - Anything Goes

Good Morning!  We're having a challenge with no twists - just make whatever your heart desires and enter it - isn't that cool?!  Our sponsor is Meljen's Designs.  Here's my inspiration for you:

I used Meljen's sweet Birthday Cupcake image.  I used card stock from my stash, and colored the image with Sharpies and colored pencils.  I dusted the Nesties Scalloped Oval cut with lavender chalk, although it is hard to see.  I added sparkle with a Gelly Roll Stardust pen (also hard to see).  The bling is from Studio G, the sentiment is Fiskars, and the ink is Memento.

My inspiration for using this image is my friend Barb who is a first rate crafter.  Here's a link to her blog The Buzz, featuring her use of this image. Barb's coloring skills are boundless and so is her creativity. She is on the Meljen's design team.  I follow her blog and had to give her a shout :)

Hop over and visit 613 Avenue Create - the DT has some lovely inspiration for you.  We'd love to have you enter the new challenge.  And don't forget - you'll find out last week's winners.  Have a great day and a Happy Memorial Day weekend if you're in the U.S.

I'm entering these challenges:  Crazy 4 Challenges - no commercially made patterned paper; Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes; and Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog, Anything Goes - must have hand coloured image.

Birthday Card for my Husband

Hi, friends!  Today I have a card I made for my husband's birthday a few months ago and never posted. 

The papers are from my stash.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but there is a bit of bling on each end of the ribbon that I colored with a Sharpie.  The sentiment is from Close to My Heart. The label punch is EK Success.

I'm entering this card in Addicted to CAS - Code Word: Birthday and The Perfect Sentiment - PSC80: Anything Goes.

Enjoy your day!
