Poppi Penguin Birthday

The card I'm sharing today is for my Nephew's 3rd birthday party.  The party is tomorrow.  I'm getting the card done just under the wire as usualMost of my cards are geared more towards adults so I don't have a lot of kids cards.  It was so much fun making this card!

I combined 2 challenges in this card.  For the layout, I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch sketch.  I popped the star off the corner for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to have a tag or element going over the edge.   I had a yellow polka dot ribbon stapled to the top of the card where the star now is.  It just looked like it didn't belong there so I carefully pulled it off and left a gaping hole in the top left corner.  I covered that hole with the yellow star which I punched out of a scrap of yellow paper that had been embossed with the chevron embossing folder from Stampin Up and a small red star. 

The image is Poppi Penguin from Bugaboo Stamps.  I used primary colors for the base and the elements.  The base is real red, the top layer is Night of Navy (even though it looks black in this picture).  I embossed the Night of Navy with the PTI canvas embossing plate. The base layer and stars and sentiment are all adhered with dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my card today!!

For The Girls...and a new Digi Stamp

This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a card that celebrates the women in your life.  Since October is Breast Cancer awareness month, I thought it was only fitting to make a card inspired by such a great cause.  Saturday (October 13) I'll be walking in our local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event with my friend and her Mom, who is a 30+ year survivor!

I'm super EXCITED to tell you about the sentiment I used on this card!  
I created the sentiment using My Digital Studio. It's printed on Papertrey Ink white CS.  I added a couple rhinestones and colored them pink with a regal rose marker, which matches the card base.  The card base is embossed with the linen embossing folder from PTI because I just LOVE that folder ♥

If you're interested in getting the digital stamp that I used on this card for your personal use, please mention it in the comments section and I'll be happy to send the file out to you.
