My Bro's Birthday.


There's another birthday in our familiy. My brother's birthday is May 18 & made this card special for him. I tried to fit in a couple different challenges & needless to say it was a bit challenging, but I got it done & he thouroughly enjoyed his card (gave it to him yesterday).
The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil Too & is called "The big guy grilling".
I chose a Mo's image in order to enter the challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge where the theme is flowers. Weird I know. Flowers for a man's b-day, but that's specifically why I chose it, because NO ONE would ever expect that!!! haha


Now over at Your Next Stamp Challenge the theme is to Cut it out & Pop it up. Same with Pixie Dust Studios.....'cut it out'  (the image that is) ......So that is exactly what I did with my Big Guy.


I am also entering my card in MoJo Monday for the sketch.  Was VERY fun to play with!!!


& finally over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog it is a recipe of 3-2-1 (3 embellies, 2 patterned paper & 1 ribbon )- Now I wasn't sure about the embellies. So I put 3 different types of embellies as well as made sure all my brads on top were black so as to cover all my bases.

And here's my card, all pulled together nicely!
See, there's my flower with paper leaves!! Ok, ok, nothing elaborate, but kinda fits don't it?!?!?!

Have a great rest of the wknd!
No school for our kids tomorrow, so it looks like another late night tonight!!
