Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day!!

This month celebrate's There She Goes 2nd Birthday, and each week's There She Goes Challenge this month is a challenge with a spin!!!

Today's challenge is brought to us by the FABULOUS Julie Lacey, and she has give us an awesome color challenge of Black, Kraft & Teal! The spin is that you have to create a card with these colors AND it must be a Birthday Card!!
The best part? If you participate in all of the There She Goes Challenges in September, you will qualify to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store to use on anything you want! WOOT!!

For my card today, I used one of my all time favorite sets from There She Goes, the Sweet Pea mini set! I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers.

I think this color combo ROCKS and I wanted to keep a clean feel to my card. I cut out the focal image with Oval Nestabilities and then layered it over a piece of black cardstock also cut with Oval Nestabilities.

The Taken With Teal panel was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, and the Kraft panel was run through with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

I used the Die-Namics Open Scallop Die and some black felt to create the border on the bottom, and I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the border as well as the focal panel. The ribbon is a yummy stitched ribbon I picked up a while ago at my LSS and I created the bow with the Bow Easy. The sentiment, "Happy Birthday", also from Sweet Pea, was stamped on Taken With Teal cardstock and then punched out with the Word Window Punch.

We would LOVE you to play along! Create a Birthday Card using this color challenge and make sure to link your creation to today's TSG71 post on the There She Goes Blog!!
