In my family, we have a lot of spring and summer birthdays to celebrate so any time I can make another birthday card for the stash, that's wonderful. Our new challenge this week at QKR Stampede has a theme of "Birthday Cards for Kids." Perfect! I chose to use Digi 24134 "Birthday Turtle" and the sentiment Digi 17206 "Birthday Again", both from QKR.
I used the sketch I found at Sketch Saturday,
and I pulled my colors from The Male Room.
The image is colored with ProMarkers (my absolute favorites!), then die cut and matted. I dug around in the scrap basket and found those wonderful bits of green CS. The 'blingy' ribbon was in my box of miscellaneous ribbons (meaning I don't remember where I got it) and the bow is one of those I make by the dozen and toss in my stash for future use. The metal charm has been hiding in my things and I decided it was time to use it.
I hope your week has gone well. For those of you in the USA, when you're celebrating the long weekend this Memorial Day, try to remember the meaning of the holiday; salute a Veteran and say a prayer for our currently serving military guys and gals, won't you? Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
