Best of Birthdays Cards for Mojo Monday, Seize the Birthday and Freshly Made Sketches Challenges

Hello, Visitors!  Here are a couple of projects I've made for past challenges.  I'm sharing them with you today because the stamp used in both will only be available until March 31.

In honor of Stampin' Up! turning 25 this last year, we've been given a "Best of" set for each month. This stamp came in the Best of Birthdays set.  Purchase six of the sets and you can choose an additional set from the current 2013-14 Annual Catalog valued at $14.95 or less.  The Best of Sets must be purchased by March 31, 2014 and the free set must be redeemed by April 30, 2014. Click {HERE} to shop ("Best of" stamps are under the heading of Stamps)!

And now, for the projects!

This card was created for the Mojo Monday MOJO331 challenge.  I loved the layout and the chevrons in the Kaleidoscope DSP (OC, page 27 #132995) work well with the Basic Black 3/4-inch Chevron Ribbon (AC page 173, #130010) to mimic the shape of the Basic Grey flagged piece.

This project was created for the Freshly Made Sketches FMS125, Seize the Birthday STB308 and Dynamic Duos DD92 challenges.  I used Rose Red and Midnight Muse card stock (the colors set forth by the Dynamic Duos color challenge.  

Studio Suggestions:
  • I stamped the image twice, fussy cutting the "Birthday" banner and popping it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • I used the Adorning Accents Edgelits (AC, page 188, #125595) to add a little interest at the top of the card.
