Happy Birthday

Hello there, this weekend's errands involved an errand to Archiver's to spend some of the gift card I received from Pat for Christmas.  While I was there, I picked up these fun Bazzill cards.  I love the scallop edge that is already cut.  To add a bit of color, I put a piece of green cardstock on the inside of the card. It would be so easy to add strips of patterned paper too. 

I decided to play along with two challenges for the card:  PaperSmooches Sparks Challenge and the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge.  From the Sparks inspiration photo, you can see I picked up the red and white polka dots as well as a pop of orange and green from the sweet little animal on the bed.   All of the stamps are from PaperSmooches.

LOVE those scalloped edges AND the bold circles...totally fun card looking for a party :) We are subzero here today and today I'm simply thankful for my new garage keeping my car warm in the winter and a short drive to work :) -33 C here with windchill...think it will be an "in" day :) Stay warm and hope the trip is going well :)

  7. I love your interpretation on the photo! I kind of think the scallops may be the ridges on the head board? Wish that was my bedroom, wow!

  8. Beautiful use of your new purchase--these ready cut scalloped card stock! I bought some of those for Scrapbooking(12x12) at Archivers in MI 2 years ago and they still waiting to be used (LOL)! Love your CAS with the circular stamping and twines! Darling design! Glad that you join the fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
