Cool Birthday

Hello Stamping Friends!

I made a couple of cards yesterday that have already been given to their recipients!  Fortunately, I had dear hubby take pics first!  I'll post one tonight.

This card was for my nephew.  He has a very short attention span, so I figured the card was more for his mom than him!  LOL!  But I included a DQ gift card inside, so that went over well!

I really had no idea where to start, but I had to make something since we were headed to visit him that afternoon.  My friend, Dawn, was the challenge hostess for the Free 4 All on SCS, which called for a snowy, frosty card.  Had to play along with my friend, right?  Then, while spending (too much) time on Facebook, I saw the Friday Mashup sketch.  I decided to use it, but did not look at the actual blog post, so no mashing up this week.

The card base and ink are island indigo.  The dsp is a retired SU baby boy pattern (can't remember the name).  The image is from SU's Zoo Review, and I added a few Serene Snowflakes in Pool Party.  After sponging the edges, I added dazzling diamonds.  The sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes, with my addition in basic black.  I used a felt snowflake, mounted to some pool party (punched and sponged circle) so the polka dot brad tips would not show.

My sister-in-law loved the card.  Ethan loves the DQ!
Thanks for stopping by!
