Bloggers Challenge - They Say It's Your Birthday

Well it's my birthday too (and Gerrie's, and Shelly's and Sharon's and Shelley's)!  Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Okay, so today isn't actually "our" birthday, we all celebrate our birthday on Monday, March 15th, but what better way to kick off a birthday than with some virtual birthday cards for me and my friends!  Here's a few fun facts, Monday is also my Mom's Birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!), all the gals I've mentioned celebarting birthdays with me, I've had the pleasure of working with at Artistic Outpost.

On to my Birthday Celebration card!  Since I'm celebrating, why not multi task and include some challenges, since there are never enough days in the week to play them all!  Besides Bloggers Challenge my card fits the following challenges:

So, what's the something NEW you ask?  Well, I'm excited to tell you that I'm now designing for Creative Inspirations, and my beautiful paints just arrived.  Creative Inspirations carries easy to use paints with vivid color and bling that make your projects sparkle.  These paints are non toxic, just shake, open and paint!  My creative jucies have been flowing with ideas on how to use these paints for more than just adding bling to your images.  You can add a bit of Creative Inspirations Paint to a waterfilled Mini Mister and create your own Shimmery Sprays, dye your ribbons and flowers, create your own paint pads!  Yes you can actually stamp with this paint!

To keep my paints organized, I dipped a pencil eraser into the paint and taped it onto the label and let dry.  Now when looking at a glance I can see all the colors at once.  I'm currently storing them in an empty Clear Stamp Box.  (click photo to enlarge).

The beautiful Watering Can from ODBD Happy Birthday set is stamped in Black then clear embossed on Watercolor paper.  I used an H20 Brush and Creative Inspirations Paints to color the image.  The butterflies are painted and popped on dimensionals.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Birthday
Ink  - Black Archival
Card Stock - Watercolor, Black, Old Olive
Other - Creative Inspirations Paint (Buttercup, Royal Purple, Chocolate, Fuchsia, Orange, Antique Silver, Green Olive),  Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber, Basic Grey Half Pearls, Scallop Trim Border Punch
