Crafty Gals-August Challenge-Animal Birthday!

It is the 5th of the month, so I am back with another challenge of the Crafty Gals!  We are a group of bloggers who have monthly challenges, caring comments & fun chit chat on SCS—our favorite stamping site to visit.

This month, the challenge was posted by Carolina.  Here are the details of her challenge:

"Animal Birthdays"

Two of my son's are having birthdays this next months. Since we didn't do any b-day cards I challenge you all to do one using an animal character and four shapes of any sort somewhere in the card plus colors red and blue. Is this too much to ask? Good luck.

I love to make birthday cards and I also have a few animal stamps.  OK—so that was the easy part………..  Red and Blue-not a problem; cardstock and patterned paper-check!  4 shapes?  Really?  Here we go…..1—circle for the image (does a scallop circle count as another?)  2—Tag for the sentiment.  3—Star brads in the top corner.  4—Square brads in the bottom corner.  And—for extra credit—a rectangle and triangle pennants on the inside. Does a bone count as a shape?  I met the Challenge!

Image/Sentiment—Craft Lounge-Pat the Bad Dog/Sentiment-Stampin’ Up Short and Sweet

Cardstock—Gina K White; Stampin’ Up Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and So Saffron; My Mind’s Eye Hip Hooray Boy Party

Ink—SU Riding Hood Red and Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—Circle, Circle Scallops, Large Tag and Pennant Punches; Square, Star and Bone Brads;  Copic Markers; Gelly Roll blue glitter pen (on scallops) and blue ribbon

Please check out the blogs of all of the Crafty Gals.   All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar and I hope you will enjoy all of our Animal Birthday creations. Thanks for joining us!

A bit challenging for me too let me tell you... but well, everybody did it and the cards were great!!!. Your card is soooo cute. I love that image and the little bone and those starts going from black to grey!!!.
