Picture Perfect Day

Hi again!  I'm back with another super quick post today.  I wanted to share a card I made for a couple of challenges and one is ending today, so here I am.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned paper is from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes 6x6 pad.  I didn't think I'd ever use this particular sheet in the pad as it's not really my cup of tea, but one of the challenges wants us to show our ugly papers so it worked for me.  The adorable image is Picture Perfect from Tiddly Inks.  I had the great pleasure of meeting Christy, the talented artist who creates these sweet stamps, at the coloring retreat this past weekend.  Of course, it would have been just wrong of me not to purchase a bunch of her cute digis!  I printed Wryn on Hammermill Color Cover Stock and colored her with my Copics.  I framed her with a Polaroid Frame that I cut with my Cameo using a file from the Silhouette store.  I popped that up over a film strip frame that I also cut with my Cameo.  The top sentiment is from Create With TLC.  The Happy Birthday was stamped.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Challenge #129 (happy birthday)
Tuesday Morning Sketches #242 (sketch)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #96 (show ugly paper)
Charisma Cardz Challenge #6 (birthday girls)

Here is TMS-242:

Thanks for stopping by again!  I'm almost caught up so I will be around shortly to visit.

Have a great day and see you soon!
