Totally Stampalicious Birthday Gus

Before I get to this week's Totally Stampalicious challenge, I have an exciting announcement.....the fabulous ladies at Totally Stampalicious have invited me to be a design team member!  I am soooooo excited!!!!  We have a new guest Designer for April too - welcome Heather!

Okay, now that you know the cool news....this week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is to make a Birthday Card.  I love this challenge because I never have enough birthday cards.  I decided to use the adorable Birthday GUS new release for this challenge.  You can never really have enough masculine cards can you?   I created the layout for this card without using a sketch.  That explains why it took so long.  Sketches are really nice.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card. Stop over to the Totally Stampalicious Blog to see all the great samples that that design team has created  for inspiration!  I hope you can play along with us this week!

Paper:   Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzaz, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Going Grey, Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Large Circle Punch, Brads, Chocolate Chip Ribbon
