Sending special Happy Birthday wishes

** 1/25/19 Winner at Crafty Catz! **
** 2/3/19 Top 3 at CCC Digi Creations! **

Hi everyone! Happy Friday – hope you’ve had a good week and are planning a fun weekend! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Polkadoodles Craft Challenge and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Week 3 – Anything Goes Challenge, a pretty Winter birthday card featuring the absolutely adorable pre-colored Winnie Winterland – Skating Around digital craft stamp. Green just happens to be my favorite color and I so enjoyed creating this!


I cut the image with a double stitched square die and layered it on a postage stamp die cut and then added foam tape on the back for a little dimension. I used papers from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven 3 and Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven 2 to create the background panel and coordinating strip which are layered on solid green cardstock. I cut the sentiment in a double stitched rectangle die and punched a couple hearts from green paint cards. I’ve been using pieces of paint cards in my crafts a lot lately, lol! The finishing touch was the addition of a few green sequins.


The front and inside sentiments are from Winnie Celebrations 2 Sentiments and Winnie Celebrations 3 Sentiments. I decorated the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front. I’m so in love with how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
