A Featured Birthday

Yippee! I used another stamp set that I love and had purchased quite some time ago but never got around to inking up! This card was made for the Featured Stamper challenge over at Split Coast.

Vicky Gould was Featured stamper and I chose this card from her wonderful gallery to case.

My changes were: I made my card a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square, different colors, no ribbon, punched bird instead of stamped, and cuttled bg instead of stamping.

I used the script Cuttlebug folder on the background panel and my scalloped Nestability circles to frame the image. On the white circle - I left the die in place on the card stock and sponged from the edges into the center - then removed the die so it left a white clean edge. The sentiment and circles are popped up on foam dimensionals.

I'm so happy to be using my 'old' stuff!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! Thank you for dropping by today!
