Birthday Challenge

Wednesday once again and that's means it's time for another Papercraft Star Challenge!  Let us help you get over that hump with a Birthday challenge.  Our spotlight designer this week is Sylvia, and once again she had created something absolutely beautiful for this challenge!  Stop by her blog to take a look at how she has used some beautiful images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  For my card this week I created a little shabby number that I had loads of fun making!  I used a simple sentiment form Clear Art Stamps and used lots of embellishments.  i started out with some Webster's Pages which I matted on some choice butter cream card stock from Taylored Expressions.  I just thought those little cupcakes were SO sweet!  The sentiment was stamped on the butter cream card stock and framed using a Tattered Angles chipboard.  I used some Tim Holtz distress inks on the frame and paper.  The seam binding and pom pom trims were added along with a stick pin I made myself and a tuff of feathers.  I used a sizzix rolled flower die to cut my light pink fleece.  To adhere the flower I used fabric tac, and added a pearl to the center.  Now it's your turn!  Just link up your project by 6:00 am EST for your chance to win some lovely images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  Looking forward to seeing what you all create!
