Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!! Looks like it is going to be another hot one!! The park we take the kids to has a summer program going on for 3 weeks and they had a blast yesterday so later on today we are taking them back. Today they have the police officers there with there cruiser which will be so cool for the little boys at the park, beats crafts and games!! Anyways I thought I would post another card for two challenges before my daughter gets up for the day!!

The Sweet Stop : Sketch with a spin (use numbers)
Craft Your Passion Challenges: Black & White + One other colour

Here is the sketch:

What I Used:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : Sweet Gretchen/Bethany's Birthday Wish
Memento ink: Tuxedo Black
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils
Prismacolor Colorless Blender
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Traditional Scallop
7gypsies paddington 6x6 paper (from Amy over at Scrap This, Save That )
K & Company Smash Tape: Black Dots (from Amy Scrap This, Save That )
Couture Creations Embossing Folder: Satine

I wanted this card to have a kiddist feel (like one kid made it for another) LOL who am I kidding I still have yet to find the paper that works best with the Prismacolor pencils, I probably should have paper pieced her dress, maybe next time!!

You have until the 27th to enter  The Sweet Stop : Challenge and til the 29th to enter the Craft Your Passion Challenge.

Have A Great Day!!

God Bless!
