Happy 6th Birthday ~ Classic Design Challenge!

What better time to join a Design Team than in the month of their Birthday Celebration!  I'm super excited to be among so many talented ladies on this team and look forward to sharing  my cards  with them through this monthly challenge.  With this challenge being an Australian posting, you'll see the United States posting(s) around 4 pm on the last day of the month. 

For the birthday celebration there were lots of sponsors!  I selected three for my projects to share today.  I hope you will enjoy each of them and follow the link to visit the sponsor's website to see more of their products. 

First up ~ Whimsy Stamps.... (the company that allowed me to start my Design Team path.)

Here's Iris by Artist Sylvia Zet,  sharing her birthday wishes!

Iris is colored with Copic markers  and mounted on a 6" square card base with a purple dotted background and lavender organza bow.   Her wings are covered with clear Wink of Stella to give her lots of sparkle and shine. 

Next up is Paper Nest Dolls', Party Chicks bringing their birthday present for the celebration!

They are also colored with Copic markers and framed with a navy heart frame on a polka-dotted matting.  This card base is 6" square and the sentiment is hand stamped from a miscellaneous birthday pack. 

My third card is from Fred She Said and is a lovely pot of violets, named African Violets.  This package offers many variations from the single flower, to a grouping of three flowers, to the predesigned layout for cards ready to print and color. 

I really enjoyed coloring these violets as they brought back so many memories of my Mom growing beautiful violets under the UV lights in the kitchen.  I've used my Copics for coloring and hand stamped a generic 'hello there' greeting for this one.  I added a light yellow organza bow for the finishing touch to bring out the flower centers. 

I hope you were pleasantly surprised today when you popped in to visit my blog! Not often you get three cards in one day!  You can click HERE to go over to the Classic Design Challenge and see all the Design Team cards and enter your cards.
