Sparkle and Shine - Birthday Wishes

Good morning! It's time for a new challenge over at the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Blog - this week we have another inspiration photo challenge, and a prize sponsored by Winnie and Walter!

This past Sunday was my nephew's 7th birthday party - and I didn't realize until that morning that I didn't have a single boy birthday card in my stash! So...when we got home from church, in addition to gathering everything else we needed to head over the party (make guacamole, pack up the other food, and feed the family a snack!) - I got this made and photographed. Talk about marathon crafting - I did all that in a little under an hour! Whew! It was fun when he opened it though, and someone asked him if it looked store bought or homemade...he looked at it and thought for a minute, then said "It looks boughten!" I'll just take it as a compliment! :)

Here is our inspiration photo - I even love the shade of green in this photo! I decided to just use the color green for my card:

I used Tim Holtz's Crazy Birds stamp set (had been too long since I had inked them up!) and a sentiment from MFT's Birthday Bears stamp set. I colored with Copics - with super quick and simple shading, then added some Pretty Pink Posh silver star sequins. Finished off with some American Crafts pattern paper!

Our amazing sponsor this time around is Winnie & Walter. The winner will receive:

I hope you will join in and play along! Looking forward to seeing your creations! Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!!!
