I made this card for the "Green with Envy" Challenge over at Bugaboo Stamps ~ Catch the Bug challenge blog. These digi stamps are just so gosh darn cute!! I actually placed in the top 3 on their last challenge "Get Well" - I was very excited. This was the first time I had won anything on a challenge. I placed 3rd and got 2 of their wonderful images FREE!! You should play along - never know when you might get lucky like me : )
Onto my card......as soon as I seen the challenge was green I knew the image I wanted to use right away. ALLIG balloon was first choice. I also just got in my ProMarkers that I had been patiently waiting for all week. Glad I did, I had 4 different shades of green...LOL.
They also threw in an added challenge of a sketch as well. So make a Card with Green and follow the Provided sketch and post a link to it on Bugaboo Stamps' challenge blog, Catch the Bug, by3/5/11 at 6:00 AM EST to be entered a random drawing for three digi prize packs - seven (7) (using a Bugaboo image only), four (4), or two (2) using any image!
It is really hard to tell, but I embossed the green thru the middle of the card w/Happy Birthday, along w/stamping it on the balloon. My youngest granddaughter turns 1 tomorrow and I was thinking of her the whole time I made this card. I know most girls like pink and frilly stuff, but I thought this was a cute image that could be used for either a boy or girl. Depending upon how it was done up.
