Celebrate You and Spring Fever Challenge

Took a quick trip this weekend to a cool scrapbook store. They had everything you could think of and many awesome products to choose from. They had Quickutz too but no Cuttlebug or Sizzix dies...darn.

But I did find some nice birthday and Easter papers from Heidi Grace. Not sure if you can see it but some of the birthday candles on this paper are shiney because they are clear embossed. Adds some texture and shine to the background.

The image was stamped with Versafine black...of course....and colored with SU watercolor crayons. I used Sakura stardust gel pens to add some sparkles and highlights.

I used May Arts ribbon, a SU scallop circle punch and two silver brads to accent this 4x4 card. I really like the 4x4 size...perfect for a quick birthday card.

**Spring Fever Challenge** Every year, right around Easter I get a severe case of Spring Fever. The symptoms are a strong desire to clean and organize my house. This year is no exception to the rule. Starting on Monday I will post a daily challenge and post the prize for the day that will be added to the Grand Prize basket.

The catch...of course there is a have to do all of the 5 challenges to qualify for the prize package. What's the prize package? Lots of stuff that I will gather from my studio as I attempt to rid myself of this Spring Fever. (stamps, papers, ribbons, brads, flowers, etc.) Get your creative juices flowing and tell everyone to check in on Monday morning for the first Challenge.

Here are the rules and the challenge is open to anyone that wants to participate:

  1. You must do all 5 daily challenges Monday thru Friday
  2. You must post a comment with a link to your card by midnight central time (no exceptions), it doesn't matter where you post the card just send me a link before midnight
  3. You must follow the daily challenge rules posted on my blog

That's it.....easy peasy. Any questions just comment or send me an email. Get your stampin mojo ready by Monday.
