Beate's Weekend Challenge Birthday Card

I thought I'd give Beate's Weekend Challenge a try today. I haven't done one of these in a while. Finding new card layouts is always fun and to actually make a card with it (on your own) can be quite a challenge.

This is what I came up with for her challenge. I used the Stampin' Up! "Pun Fun" set. I also used two Cuddlebug folders to create the background texture on the Soft Sky card stock. I used the large scallop punch by Marvy. The whale was stamped on watercolor paper and colored in using a blender pen and sponging. The words are from "Everyday Flexible Phrases." I added the corners using Bayou Blue card stock. I did sponge over the top layer of the bubble embossed card stock so it would stand out more against the other textured Soft Sky background.

I did flip her sketch. I just couldn't get the "happy" and "birthday" bubbles to work right without flipping it.

So this is my take on her sketch. Now I'm to post it on SplitCoastStampers and then post a link to it on Beate's Blog.

I encourage you to try new card layouts. Always keep learning and studying how other people make cards. It's like any other thing you'd study for. The more you notice the more you learn!!!

It looks like this week I'll be offering up some Blog Candy. It seems that the "Chatty Cathy" blog candy is coming due. I'm coming up on 700 posts!!! WOW!!! Check back in to find out more.

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
