Have a super fun b-day! card

Hi all!

I hope everyone had a good week and you're all as excited as I am for the weekend! I hadn't had time to craft til today so I'm super excited to share the card I made this afternoon. I'm combining three challenges--each of which has a GREAT prize and are a lot of fun! First up is the incredible Simon Says Stamp blog. They're celebrating their 4 year birthday and they're offering some AMAZING prizes! Second, is the Lawnscaping Challenge site that challenged us to emboss something...a technique that looks fabulous on cards! And last, but certainly not least, is the fun V's Sweet Ideas site. I've played along before in their challenges and have purchased things from the store--GREAT customer service and GREAT products, too! Their challenge was simple--anything goes! You can't beat that! :)

Below you'll find the challenge badge and my card: I wanted to use one of the Simon Says Stamp products that I love. I used the Fresh Daisies die as the main image on the card. I also used Memory Box's Piestra Tile die--isn't it lovely? I layered that on some red pattern paper and love how elegant it looks! Then I embossed the brown card base with the cuttlebug's Musical Flourish embossing folder. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I cut out a banner and added some inking around the edges and some red gems to finish off the card. It's a simple yet elegant card...just how I like it! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
