Bloggers Challenge - Birthday

This weeks challenge was to make a Birthday card - use any sketch, any stamps - just make a Birthday card. I bet my Bloggers Challenge players wonder where I come up with the challenges each week...well, for this week, since my youngest was turning 13, I knew I'd have to make a Birthday card, so that's where this weeks challenge came from. Here's a picture of Joe who turned 13 yesterday...

To create my card - I colored the back of my Happiness is a Journey stamp, with markers, lightly misted then stamped onto my confetti card stock. It give is a nice watercolor look.

Have a great weekend!
