A Birthday Challenge with Isabella

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Spice

Yes, I am late posting my Isabella's Sketchbook weekly challenge card. I was just so sick this week I couldn't get any crafting done. But I finally got my project finished and thought I would go ahead and post anyway. If nothing else, I want to inspire you to go play in the challenge this week. Our DT Leader, Linda Payne of Payne Holler, has added to the prize booty with something fun and something you will all just NEED to have, so rush over to the challenge blog to see exactly what it might be! and this, of course, is in ADDITION to the chance to win 2 gorgeous digis from Isabella's store. She just added over 2 dozen new images this week, so you have a lot of gorgeousness to browse through! :) Of course you need to stop by the other DT members' blogs to see the amazing things they have created!

The theme this week is 'birthday'. I found this fun trim at JoAnn's the other day, and to my excitement, once I went to have it cut, discovered it was marked down. So the trim became the inspiration for the remainder of the card. I found some fun scraps that happened to match the colors. the only one I know for certain in a piece of Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste in the upper right corner. the green bit in the bottom right is actually a tissue square from Making Memories that I crinkled & distressed. Shimmerz paint, purple & green glitter pens, and my white gel pen were used on the main image to add highlights. The edges were done with fruit punch stickles. Finished up with a MS border punch & white gel pen dots, a birthday charm, buttons, and a Prima flower.

Please be sure to play along. You still have a few days, and birthday cards are always great to have on hand. Enjoy your day!

Your card is super and a great way to use up those scraps by tying them to the piece of trim. Late maybe, but well worth the wait.
Hugs!
