Clearly Inspired Challenge #14

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Clearly Inspired Challenge on Lori McCroskey's blog..... today the challenge is a Birthday theme!!

Use Clear Dollar Stamps if you have them, if not, please play anyway....we would love to see your designs!!! A random winner will be chosen the following Thursday. Upload your cards to Mr. Linky on Lori's blog and if you upload to Splitcoast, use CIC14 in the keywords.

My card features the beautiful round tag from Clear Dollar Stamps Tag Blessings. It was stamped with Ruby Red and layered on Cherry-Go-Round cardstock and Basic Grey's Garden Variety dp. The same designer paper and matting was used on the background layers and sewing was dome around the edges. The fluffy flower was made with the Basic Gry dp and a scalloped Stampin Up! punch. A brad was used in the center of the flower and Cherry-Go-Round ribbon, buttons, twine, and the Martha Stewart punched ferns finish it off.


This is also for a few other challenges:

1. AI Factory - anything goes with a punch (punch used for the flower)
2. Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - punch it out (punch used for the flower)
3. A Spoon Full of Sugar - celebration
4. Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes birthday
5. Polka Doodles Challenge Blog - sewing
6. Charisma Cardz Challenge - circles
7. Secret Crafter Challenge Blog - buttons and blooms


Thanks for stopping by this morning....be sure to check out Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp for the DT's samples and all the deets on the challenge!!!
