Alota PCP Blue Birthday Challenge -

A new Papercraft Planet Alota Group Challenge has started - and this time it is DT member Susan's turn to host - she decided a color/theme challenge so we are asked to make Blue Birthday cards. Helene, the owner of ALOTA RUBBER STAMPS, just sent me a few new stamps... and one is this adorable new bug stamps called "The Sterners" named for her daughter's family... they just had an adorable baby boy! Welcome ALAN!

So I knew I just had to color up and use this new stamp... but the theme was a birthday card. Well I stretched the theme just a bit - LOL This is a Happy BIRTH-day card!

I started by coloring my image with a chalk background and my copics, then I stickled the bugs wings. I sewed down the image to a Daisy D's solid blue paper, the same paper I used as the mat on the white card stock base. I found a scrap white with blue dot paper in my stash, gorgeous sparkled dots! I think this is DCWV.. I think. The border is a new EK Success punch, then used a satin blue ribbon as a band.

My sentiment is computer generated, then three felt flowers with jewelry spacers and mini brads. I like my BIRTH-day card...

I hope you will stop by and visit the Alota PCP Group - and join in on our challenges.. Helene sends out some wonderful prizes to the winners!
Well off to get Wednesday going - Hubby is back at work today so I might actually get some of my chores done today! LOL Have a wonderful day -
HUGS and-
