It's Your Birthday with a New Challenge at Get Creative

Welcome to the new challenge at Get Creative!!! This is a Challenge Blog with this week's challenge theme - Birthday with the fabulous sponsors Angie's Cards and Digis and Polka Doodles.

I chose to use Angie's Cards and Digis Swan for my birthday card with but of course, the Stickles Fairy making an appearance!!!!

  • size A2 card with Recollection Fashionably Chic as my background
  • white and blue Recollection borders using Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch
  • blue gingham ribbon wrapped around the blue border and then tied in bow
  • Swan was colored using chalk, Whispers Markers with gel pen, Stickles, and Darice Glossy Accents 
  • sentiment on the front, "It's your BIRTHDAY! party" is from Create with TLC Tons of Birthday Wishes Word Art Set was chalked around the edges with faux stitching
  • inside sentiment, "Someone like you should be celebrated every day", is from Create with TLC  Its a Celebration Vintage Digi Images and Word Art Set which has a partial Martha Stewart Eyelet Border punch, chalked around the edges and mounted on paper to match the front
