Celebrate Your Birthday!


Hi everyone.  Another two weeks has flown by and time for the next ATCAS challenge.  First, wanted to thank all of you that participate in our challenges ... we LOVE seeing your cards!

This challenge is being run by the multi-talented Jaydee (Stampin! with Jaydee).  She has chosen this code word ...







Prize:  7 digital images


I love Bugaboo's fun and whimsical images and have used them A LOT! :)  Love this little guy all dressed up in his party finery and floating through the air with the balloons.  It makes me smile! :)  I colored him in Copics and added some sparkle to his hat, horn and spots.  The balloons are coated with Crystal Effects (Glossy Accents) to give them shine and dimension.  I used chalk to add the "air" around him.

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge ... it's open for two weeks, so lots of time to play along.  Cathy (Cathy's Card Spot) is with us again as our Guest Designer --- it's been fabulous having her on the team.  Click here to see Cathy's "Celebrate" card and the wonderful cards from the rest of the Design Team.







Stamps:  Turtles - birthday (Bugaboo Stamps); sentiment is computer generated
Paper:  110 lb. white (Neenah)
Ink:  Copics
Accessories & Tools:  Clear Wink of Stella, Crystal Effects, blue chalk, sponge
