A birthday girl card...

Hey there!

So my fellow Gleeks... what did you think of Regionals last night? I thought the amount of music was insanely awesome and while the original songs sung at the competition were fantastic, it was Kurt's Blackbird solo that was a true highlight for me. Love, love, loved everything about this episode and you know I'll be waiting anxiously for Glee's return in a few weeks. :)

Ok, well it's Wednesday once again and you all know that means it is time for a new challenge over at ATS. This week we want to see you create a birthday card. Seriously, who can't use an extra birthday card or two in their card stash? And the incentive of winning a fab prize just seems like an added bonus if you ask me! ;)

I used another 'big head' Zodiac Girl for my card today, but instead of coloring her up as 'Pisces' I just colored her as a fun tweeny/teeny birthday girl. I didn't even have to do any altering this week to achieve the look. Instead I simply put a couple of pearls over the fish in her hair and now she is just wearing some fun hair bobbers... easy peasy! The rest of the card is pretty simple because I didn't want to fuss too much with this perfectly party-ish looking paper, though I couldn't resist tying on some pretty twine to hint at the presents and of course some bling! :)

Now it is your turn to get in the party mood and join the fun! Every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Later gators!
