Amusing Challenge – Birthdays


This month A Muse Studio is celebrating birthdays and so I’m taking their lead this week for our Amusing Challenge!  Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner.  March’s Prize Winner will receive Orange Blossom Washi tape – it’s one roll with different patterns that changes every couple of inches – stripes, polka dots and florals.  The winner will be announced tomorrow.

Carol is back this week with a friendly card to wish anyone a special birthday…this week I’ll be sharing a variety of cards that she made using Wonderful Windows that would make a lovely card set to give as a birthday present.

Tricia, of 1PhatChic, used one of the new A Muse Studio April Collection stamp sets called Birthday Girl.  I love her pastel colors and this is a fun matchbook type card that features a shaker!  How fun would this be to receive?

Once again Cyndi combined some critters with the Wonderful Windows stamp set and it is so cute!  I don’t think you even have to be a cat lover to love this card…it’s purrfect.  Yup, I said that!

I CASEd a card from the A Muse Studio catalog and just changed up the color scheme a bit.  I love how it turned out and it’s enroute to my sister-in-law.  I took one of the sentiments from Birthday Girl – from the newest April Collection – and split it into two parts.
