Birthday Party for Teddy

     Good Thursday Morning to you all!   It's a new challenge starting today over at Aud Sentiments.  Our theme is to use the number "5" or a "Birthday Sentiment."  If someone you know is celebrating his or her 5th birthday, you could combine them.  :-D  Our sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and they generously provided images for the DT to use.  Mine is called "The Magic of Pretend" and it was perfect for a birthday invitation.


     To color it, I used pink, blue, and yellow chalk, applied with cotton swabs.  Very simple and it gives such a soft look.  I used hot pink, yellow, and blue CS to frame the image and the used some beautiful yellow ribbon for the bow.  The sentiment is printed and chalked with blue.  I used a wide, sheer ribbon with both yellow and pink tones in it and did a single wrap of it around the card front, over the CS layers but behind the image.

     Challenges:
Animal Friends
Chalk n Stock
Crafting with Attitude
Inkspirational

     Come play along with us this week.  We both know you always can use another birthday card in your stash and that's all you need to play along with us.  OK, you need to make sure it has a birthday sentiment on it but why make a birthday card without a birthday sentiment?  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I have not played with chalks for years - it is inspirational to see it used like this Connie! Such a light touch makes a soft scene perfect on your card. Nicely done!
