Hooray ~ It's Your Birthday

Good morning from the Polkadoodles Design Team.  We hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Challenge 16 of the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog is now open for your viewing and entries.  Our Design Team challenge  for this week was to use a 'Pre-coloured Critter/Animal image'.   I have to admit, this is the first time I've ever used a precoloured image for a design team card!

For this challenge I selected Hooray - Sparkle Unicorn Coloured (DLPD8170).

I sized the unicorn to about 4" tall and printed her. 

After making the 6" card base with coordinating yellow gold cardstock, I used the happy birthday paper and magenta polka dotted paper from the Polkadoodles Birthday Fun pack. 

For the center piece, I cut a strip about 1" wide and secured it to the card front.  I used Jillian Vance's Stitch Dot Emerald dies for the unicorn and the magenta paper.  Placing the unicorn in my Misti,  I carefully stamped 'happy birthday' at the bottom of the image.   Then added the background and image to the card front.    Lastly I finished the card with the pale lavender ribbon and bow at the top fold of the card. 

I hope you'll check out all the design team cards on this week's challenge and add yours in also! 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
