The Corrosive Challenge #205 - Birthdays


Hey there!  How goes it, crafty peeps?  Today is the start of my birthday week and what better way to kick it off than with a new Corrosive Challenge!?

We have a fabulous new sponsor lined up for you too!  We're welcoming back Sami Stamps!  Sami has generously provided the design team with images to work with and she is offering a $12 gift certificate to her STORE for our winner!



In honor of the day I was born, our challenge theme is "Birthdays".  Simply make a birthday card, any kind for anyone, and enter it for your chance to win!  I selected Whiskers Under My Broom to work with.  She is colored with Copics and cut out using the Classic Squares Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I found a fun challenge over at Your Next Stamp (#15) that combined a fun sketch and inspirational photo.  You could use one or the other or both.  Since it was a phot of purple cupcakes, I figured I'd use my favorite color in my creation.  Papers are Lilybeedesign - Picket Fence tiny tablet.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut using the Fishtails Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things).  I added ribbon, flowers, pearls, and a couple of pipe cleaners.  I have seen this embellishment used on other cards and wanted to try it.  I think maybe they are a tad too wide, but I like them anyway.


  
And if you've read all the way to the end you will see that I have a special birthday BLOG CANDY up for grabs!  This item is a hot commodity so you might want to enter the random drawing...  It is Issue #47 of Complete Cardmaking magazine.  Yup, this is the one with the CD that contains those coveted Saturated Canary images!!!  I happen to have an extra one and I'm giving it away to one of you!

  
There are just a few rules in order to be eligible:

1) Please be a follower of my blog!  If you're not, then click the Join This Site button!  (You can also like my Charmed Stamping page on Facebook HERE.  This is optional, but will get you an extra entry in the draw.)
2) Please leave a comment on this post.
3) Please enter your name using the linky tool below.

That's it!  Easy-peasy, right?!  I am so excited to give this candy away!  Please share and spread the word!  Your blogs, your Facebook feeds, Twitter, Instagram...  Whatever your preferred social media platform is, kindly put me on it!  Blog candy closes on August 17th at 5am Eastern Time.  A winner will be selected from eligible entries using Random.org and will be announced here on my blog and on Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!

What a fun card! I wouldn't normally pick an image like this for a birthday card but you have the perfect sentiment to go with it!

Sami Stamps is also currently having a challenge that is "Anything Goes." The only requirement is to use a Sami Stamps image. So your card qualifies if you want to play along!

Nadine said...
