GCA #101 - A Happy Birthday!!


Hello all!!!  No, it isn't my birthday, but it is someones birthday somewhere in the world!  Corny I know.  When creating new cards I tend to make alot of birthday cards.  Seems like you can never have too many of them.

So this week, the challenge is to create a birthday card.  No special requirements, BUT if you make a man/boy tween/kids birthday card, you'll get extra points!  Seems like I always am making cards for ladies and when I need one for a man or kid, I don't have them!!

My card was created with a man in mind, but after I finished it I thought it would work for a male tween too.  They are one finicky group to make cards for!!

This was actually created with scraps left on my table.  I created a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) using Sense of Time and Extreme Elements.  I used the colors of Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla.  I actually pulled this combo from my new color coach.  This is a great tool to have, especially with the color renovation SU! did with this catalog.  Who would of thought that Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie would go together???

So, using the scraps from the OSW and others on my table, this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is from the new Word Play set (fabulous set of sentiments) and stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  I first stamped the small dotted stamp from Extreme Elements in Pumpkin Pie, after off-stamping twice.  Just to add a little "bling" I put the new Champagne glass glitter on the star above the (i).  This panel is up with dimensionals and I used linen thread around the bottom.  I added the 1/2" library clip on here, just because!!  The Old Olive strip was distressed on the edges.

Upload your creation to either your blog or to an online gallery and post a link to your creation to this blog entry by August 21, 2010 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner the next day. If you upload your card to SCS, PaperCraft Planet, Stampin' Addicts or Stamp TV, please put GCA101 in your keywords. That way everyone can see all of the wonderful creations at once!

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenges and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!

Happy Stamping!!!!!
