Stamp Something

We have a new challenge for you this week, "Birthday Somethings" and it's being sponsored by Starving Artistamps! For this challenge just make a project with the theme of birthdays. You can make a card for someone or scrap a page using photos from a birthday party, or even make a gift idea for a birthday present. Have fun with this challenge.

I've made three cards this morning that all (I think) fit the bill for this challenge. They are all 'birth' day cards as I am trying to get my shop stocks filled up again. I used sketches which Laura and Kazan have posted for their DT call entrants.
Papers are from the new Papermania 6 x 6 pad, Scrumptious, pale pink card has been run through the paisley embossing folder by Cuttlebug and the stamp is one of the first stamps I ever bought but I'm not sure who made it as there isn't a manufacturers name on it. I stamped the image twice, once onto white card and once onto patterned paper, and paper pieced it. The ribbon is actually printed with the words 'It's a Girl'.
The image on this card is a Snag Em stamp by Imaginisce which I've stamped onto a piece of K & Co gingham paper and cut out. The sentiment is from one of the Studio G sets I think. I cut the mats using my new label Nesties and layered it all onto a piece of pale pink perfumed card, finishing it off with three small s/a pearls.
This card is also made for a challenge on Crafts by Carolyn, A Pocket Full Of Posies, to make a pocket card. Paper is again from the Papermania pad, the 'Sherbert Pips' are from Craftwork Cards I found the sheet of s/a tags in a drawer just before Christmas but have no idea where they came from!!! and the butterfly card came from a craft fayre a few years ago.
I liked the sketches so I thought I would use them even though they won't be entered for the DT call.
