Sisterhood Challenge is Back!

And I'm hosting this week's challenge - a birthday card! But not just any birthday card - a kids birthday card for my nephew's sixth birthday. I can't believe he's growing so quickly!



I've had this great SU! Designer Paper for quite and feel like in the new year, I need to use up my collection rather than just add to it, so this is my third card of the year using up some of my papers.

I used the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 314 as inspiration for a starting point and never looked back!  See what the other Sisters created over at the Sisterhood of Crafters and show us your best kids birthday card!
Papers: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Ruby Red (Real Red because I have almost no Ruby Red left)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Ruby Red, Real Red, Barely Banana
Accessories: Button, Ribbon, Bling, Paper Piercer, Stickles, Liquid Pearls

  3. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

  5. Great color combo and I love the sprinkles on the cupcakes and your ribbon treatment is fabulous. Darling card.

    I was thinking of you as I was shovelling WET snow this morning! I'm not a morning exerciser by nature, so this sure got my blood running! Shovelfest has moved to White Rock and I am definitely celebrating LOL! Got about 8 inches overnight so the kids are beyond thrilled. PERFECT snowman making snow, that's for sure! Gotta run and get the kids to school. Have a great day :)

  9. Hey girl, love your card... love the little glitter candles and as always the papers you choose always are perfect. (Me, not so much---choosing papers takes me the longest).

    Although I needed the break, I am so glad to back together!
