It looks like someone is going to celebrate a special day!



It's Birthday Cupcake Timmy, an adorable image from Digital Delights



Digital Delights is the proud sponsor for the new Craft Us Crazy Challenge.

Thank you, Digital Delights!!!






Craft Us Crazy Challenge


February 16 - 29


Use your FAVORITE COLOR and/or EMBELLISHMENT





PRIZE PACKAGE: $5 Gift Voucher from Digital Delights





I don't really have a favorite color, though I do usually gravitate toward either black or dark brown for my layers under the focal color/papers. I think that sort of makes the other papers/elements pop.


I do have favorite embellishments, though. You've probably noticed that I often use ribbon and/or brads on my cards.... so I used both on this card, as well as a button.






And of course I had to use some designer paper; I always do! I gave it full attention inside my card.






I hope you'll participate in the Favorite Color and/or Embellishment Craft Us Crazy Challenge!

So great to see that you made "you-time" to get inky and create!

Great layout! I like that DP and your idea of moving the square to make a diamond - simple and smart!

Darlene said...

Wonderful!!
Did you make the diamond embossed DP? It's lovely and the image is sooo cute. Colored to perfection. Like you, I adore brads & ribbon so of course love that on your card. The inside really shows off the diamond paper (you can tell that's a hit with me!)
This is a really great card, J.

Cute Card Jeanette--so you love ribbons and brads? I could have guessed--maybe we need to have a trivia contest sometime to see who knows the most about others and offer prizes? Oh yeah, we did and Tami was the winner!

I really like the layout of your card and the colors rock!

Thanks for sharing and I am sure you are enjoying your stops along the way................
