HB2U Darnell + The Cutting Edge Challenge #1 + The Curtain Call Birthday Bash + MFW

There is a birthday party happening out in cyber space for our wonderful, generous and funny blogging friend, Darnell, of djkardkreations. The party starts with Bev at Happy Dance (where you MUST check out the hamster wheel shoes) and ends with a Linky Party at Ardyth's blog home, Maskerade. Be sure to click through all the festivities and join in the fun!




I used a few speech bubbles, assorted "happy" stamps and a word die to make this bright and happy card. All the dies are inlaid, including the "birthday"word die, which has a few extra cuts layered on top.




A bit of Wink of Stella on the birthday sentiment adds just the right touch of glitter and shine.

This card was inspired by a brand new card challenge from Jackie Rockwell that is based on creating cards with die cut elements. You can find the details for The Cutting Edge Challenge #1 here.

The colors from The Curtain Call July 1 Birthday Bash Inspiration Photo steered me towards the Lawn Fawn patterned papers. You can see the details of this challenge here.




ETA I am also linking this card to the new Moxie Fab World Wonderful Words Challenge - head over here for the details.

Happy Birthday Darnell!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  12. I wish I knew how to do speech bubbles inside a comment box, but I don't, so close your eyes ~ no, wait, you can't read this if you do that ~ just image bubbles saying "Thank" "Thank" "Thank" "YOU!" I love this hip and colorful card! I'm feeling like the most special person on earth getting TWO beautiful birthday cards from you!! You spoil me and I love it!!

    I hope you had a Happy 4th! We have had nonstop parties around here between my birthday and the 4th, which is why I'm so late getting around to visit! Thanks again! Have a wonderful weekend!! Mwah! Darnell
