Party! Party! Party!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! It sure feels like Saturday what with tomorrow being a holiday! Woo Hoo!!

I have to run out and do some food shopping (I's an exciting life I lead), but I wanted to finish these two cards I have been working on!!

The Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash is going strong over at the Stamp A Sweet Impression Blog, and these two cards I have made actually encompass SIX Baker's Dozen Challenges!!

We would LOVE if you played along...the prizes are AMAZING!!

My first card is for three challenges! Taylor's Inspiration Challenge, TEBBTV, Karen's Sketch Challenge, TEBBKM, and Donna's Paper Piecing Challenge, TEBBDB!

I was SO inspired by the colors in Taylor's Inspiration, and so I pulled out some retired East Coast Prep DSP from SU! for my card! I paper pieced cuppie's *wrapper* with some of the same DSP! I used the Cuppie from Doctor's Orders for my card, I just omitted the "Get Well Soon" sentiment from the balloon!!! Cuppie and the balloons were all colored with Copic Markers and just did a LITTLE bit of piercing on my card!! I finished it off with a scallop border (Karen's sketch ROCKS...I am totally going to use this over and over!), some Cherry Brads by American Crafts and a TRIPLE ribbon of Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Grosgrain, Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain and Whisper White Grosgrain!! My sentiment, "Happy Birthday" is from Branching Out!

My second card is also for three challenges! Charmaine's Color Challenge, TEBBIC, Laura's Sketch Challenge, TEBBLF, and Dawn's Paper Tole Challenge, TEBBDE!!

I used Boys Will Be Boys for my card, and I stamped this golf image quite a few times! The "green" was stamped twice and popped up on Foam Tape, the flagpole was stamped twice and popped up on Foam Tape, and the Flag and golf ball were stamped three times and popped up on Foam Tape!!

All the images were colored with Copic Markers and I used a cloud template with Bashful Blue ink behind my image.

I ran my Sunflowers Medium & Choice Snow White panels through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, and I cut out my sentiment, "Hope Your Day is Par-Fect", which is also from Boys Will Be Boys, with one of the tag dies from Lots of Tags from SU!/Sizzix. I attached the tag with a Bashful Blue Brad, and then added three White Brads on the left panel!!

I finished off my card with some Bashful Blue Striped Ribbon and some Apple Green Satin Ribbon!! Yummy!! Now...this is shocking...but there is NO patterned paper and NO piercing on this card! Yikes! You can get these three Prism Cardstock Colors right here!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! Make sure to use the keywords for each challenge when you upload your creations...I would love to see what you all make!!
