STMC1 - Happy Birthday or Bust!

Hola Amigas! It's Saturday and I am ready to party! Time to celebrate the first ever Stampendous Sketch Challenge! Well, our fearless sketch leader Cyndi has gathered us together to start us off with the first sketch. You can get the full details at the Stampendous blog, but here are some of the sketch highlights: there will be 2 prize winners chosen (one for best use of Stampendous products and one by random), you have until April 15th at midnight PDT to upload your card (please use STMC1 when uploading to Splitcoast Stampers, Paper Craft Plant or any other online gallery) and you will need to post a link to your card in the comments section on the Stampendous blog post. Prizes are always fun! Let's start the fun with Fluffles. I am celebrating a special occasion today - My Big Bro's Burfday!!! He is so cute and cuddly. Just like Fluffles! So I decided to use one of my all time favorite Stampendous stamps - Floating Fluffles. I paper pieced Fluffles' party hat and balloon with some cute My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I used some other pieces from the same paper collection for the corner circles and background layer. So matchy, matchy! Since my sentiment is with my main image I added some rustic buttons to tie in with the rest of the sketch. I would love to see you all play along with us! You don't have to use Stampendous products, but if you got them we would love to see how you use them! Have a Stampendous Day! I'm off to help to celebrate my brother's birthday!


Thanks for visiting!
