Clearly Inspired Challenge #42 *** Birthday ***

Hello Friends! It has happened again, time has flown by and I find it is once again time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge over at ClearlyiStamp! This time, our hostess and my BFF, Cassie, has challenged us to make Birthday cards! Seeing how we are about to celebrate Jesus' birthday, it is a perfect and timely theme! Great Job, Cassie!

I chose these two adorable single stamps to create a Christmas-ish birthday card. I have a few friends who have December birthdays, so I thought it would be fun to make a birthday card with Christmas undertones, and this MME 12 days of Christmas made a perfect backdrop! And I love these colors together!

Card Details:

Stamps: Birthday Cake Swirls & Happy Birthday
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Choice Snowwhite, MME 12 days dp
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics: BG01, BG02, BG05, G05, Y38, YR07, R27, C1
Tools/Accessories: Circle & Lacey Circle Nestabilities

Here are the details of the Clearly Inspired Challenge:

-Challenges are on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, and you'll have 2 weeks to finish each challenge.
 -Challenges can use any stamps or digis from any company

-Only one entry per person per challenge and please no back posting
-Prizes will be given away after both challenges for the month. The number of prizes is determined by the number of participants for the month. For every 20 entries there will be a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs with a maximum of 3. (For example if over the entire month there were a total of 60 participants in both challenges, there will be 3 $10 gift certificates and 3 of the featured digital images to give away. . .that's a total of 6 winners in that example.)

Ok, lets see what you all come up with!! Get to work! :o)

I'm not sure if my comment yesterday went through, so I'm going to make sure! :) Great job on the challenge. I love the way that you incorporated the Christmas colors in with the birthday theme.
