Birthday Wishes

Hi all, it’s time again for our half point reminder for our challenge over at Digistamps4Joy. Now if you would like to go and get yourself a drink and get comfy, that’s fine, but I don’t think this post will be long enough to warrant it…of course this is me so I could be wrong lol. 

The challenge this fortnight is to create a birthday card or project. Now since I missed out on making something with the Freebie from last Friday, I figured this challenge would work perfectly for it. I started out with the idea of making a nice card for my sister in law for her birthday, but that idea kinda went south as I started picking papers and layouts, etc. so it is now a card for a male.  The image I used is called LakeMalawi and it is such a pretty image that I hope I did it justice.

I masked the land part of the image so that I could sponge the sky with my SU ink pads. The rest of the image I colored with my Crayola Pencil crayons and oms. The layout is one that I found at Repeat Impressions.

So now it’s your turn. Pop on over to our challenge blog and check out what the rest of my team mates have come up with to inspire you. And then we hope to be able to come to your blogs and check out the wonderful creations you have chosen to share with us. You can find our rules and the list of prizes also on our Challenge Blog.
