Susy B's Blooming Challenge Blog: Happy Birthday to You

The secret is outta the bag - I've been asked to be part of Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog where she has weekly challenges with wonderful prizes. This is my first post with her Design Team!!!! 

This week's sponsor is Stitchy Bear and I have used Stitchy Bear Birthday Word Art for my creation . . . 

  • background of card was made using Cricut Life's a Party Cartridge which was inspired by Paper Pasttimes of a Scrapping Mimi: Just a Note for Mom. I must admit after looking at her card, the image on page 48 looks more like a baby grand piano than anything else I can think of - what do you think???
  • image was accented with red gel pen with an oval cut as it's mat which was placed on my "piano" with a wobble to make it look like it's actually playing or singing or . . . . ok, my imagination is in overdrive!!! 
  • keys for the piano were cut following Paper Pasttimes cutting instructions - white keys were cut 2 by 1.25 inches with the black keys cut 1.5 x 1.25 inches and then foam-taped onto the keyboard after I had chalked around the edges
  • border was cut using Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge Border on page 29 along with its shadow and also foam-taped onto the keyboard after I had chalked around the edges
I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. Don't forget to showcase your project on Susy B's Blooming Challenge Blog this week to enter in the Challenge!!! It's anything goes with no size restrictions . . . . let your imagination run wild!!!!

Much love, hugs, and friendship
