Yah! It’s Your Birthday


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Anne Harmon, brings us her final challenge for the month.

Our challenge this week is Sunglasses…… Now that the sun is directly overhead, we all need to be protecting our "peepers", right! Please make a card that uses sunglasses.


For my card today I decided to use this fun image from Suzy Toronto which I think is called Daughter in Law … it is a stamp I have had for a few years now, but i think this is the first time I have used it … oops I love it!

As you can see I turned my card into a Pop Up card using the Lots of Pops Pop Up set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs.


For this card I didn’t pop up any of the pop up pieces other than the main large one which the girls are mounted to, which you can probably see better in this photo above.

I also added two Quotable pieces to the top and bottom of my card and divided my sentiment between the two panels.


Here is a closer look at the sentiment panel at the bottom of my card. You can also see that I have randomly added some glitter dots to my panel.


And finally the outside of my card … I added a large speech bubble which I layered by cutting another speech bubble in a different color and then cutting apart so I could get a border peeking through. And for good measure I added another pair of sunglasses.

    Fabulously fun birthday pop-up design, Frances. I love these sensational gals with their wild hair and sunglasses!

    You have rocked this challenge with this terrific card. Frances, always love seeing your creative and "one of a kind" cards done to perfection.

    Fun image, great papers, and most of all I love the sentiment. The sunglasses on the front image remind me so much of a couple of Audrey Hepburn movies.

    Lois said...

    Cute card, and I know your characters are ladies -- however, when I first saw your card, all I could think of was Mick Jagger and Keith Richards!

    Fabulous pop - up again, Frances, and that image of the women in sunglasses is the smiles on their faces!

    What an absolutely fun birthday those two ol' broads!

    Fantastic card Frances, it takes me back to the 70s with the glasses and wild hair, I agree with Lois I thought they could be part of the Rolling Stones
