Paper Playtime - Say it With Sentiments Birthday Challenge!!

Happy Monday, everyone!! It's the third Monday in April, so that means it's time for another super-fun Say It With Sentiments Challenge at Paper Playtime!! The theme for this challenge is to make a birthday card. This was so perfect for me because I needed to make a birthday card for a very dear blogging buddy who celebrated her birthday last week :)

Our sponsor this challenge is Mary of CARDZ TV STAMPS! The winner will receive 1 free stamp set out of  Mary's CARDZ TV STAMP STORE  of the winner's choice!!


The base of the card is a Spellbinders Labels 4. I used paper from First Edition Spring Feast stack. The white layer is embossed with the Plum Blossoms embossing folder.


I used a Spellbinders Label 9 to cut the frame and popped it up with foam tape for dimension. The branch and bird are from Straight From the Nest. I added gems to the flowers on the branch. The birthday banner is a Spellbinders banner die, inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. "Birthday" is from K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea For You & Me, and "wishes" is from Hooty Owl Accessories.


For the inside, I used "Today is Your Day" from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts. Click HERE to purchase your own set and right now...Kristal is having a 20% off sale storewide!! Just enter the code "letshavefun" during the checkout process, and let her know I sent you!! It's the perfect time to stock up on all of your favorite K Andrew Designs stamps!!



Now it's your turn!! Hop on over to Paper Playtime and check out the fabulous projects my design team sisters have for you!! Then link up your Birthday card!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Morning, Lis,
You must be back to full speed. This card is so cute! Love that little birdie and his sweet flowered branch. The bow and the bling are perfect touches too. What a great card. My palms sweat when I have to craft for a crafter. ;) Awesome work...no sweaty palms for you I bet.

Beautiful card Lisa! Love the paper and the flowers on the branch and the cute little bird. Aw heck, I like it all!!! I would love to get one of your cards so I know your bloggie friend will adore this one.

Do you have the Grand Calibur machine to cut the big dies? I've been looking at it but was not sure if there was something out there that might work better.
