Sweet Birthday Wishes from Card Cupids & Fresh Brewed Designs

Can you believe it's already August! I know, I say that every month! Today begins a new two-week challenge at Card Cupids, sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs. We're looking for Birthday cards for Kids or Shades of Blue.

My card sorta uses both themes, and features FBD's "Daydreaming" digi stamp:


For the image border, I used a modified version of the Ribbon Frame Technique and one of my favorite ribbons.

The Candy Jar & Birthday Sentiment stamps are from the Sweet Treat collection by Beth Gunnell for Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine, as are the papers. The "100% Sweet" sentiment stamped inside the thought-bubble is from a Hampton Art set.

Inspiration/Challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge: Brilliant Birthdays
Critter Sketch: Anything Goes
Fashionista Challenge: Birthday (or Baby)
Kaboodle Doodles: Birthday or Any Special Day
Party Time Tuesdays #79: Anything Goes
Stamp Man: Anything Goes / Celebrations
The Stamping Boutique: Anything Goes
Twisted Tuesday: Free For All / Anything Goes


Hope you'll join in with us for this challenge, and be a Card Cupid! The only requirement for our challenges, other than the theme, is to send in at least card to Card Cupids (the simple instructions are here). 

Best,
