They Say It's Your Birthday!

Holy moly, can you believe is is AUGUST already?!  Summer is almost over, sniffle sniffle.  It's so cliche, but where does the time GO?  Seriously.  Well, at least there are some things to look forward to as the summer winds down, one of them being a fabulous new sponsor at The Corrosive Challenge Blog!  This month we are so very lucky to be sponsored by Saturated Canary.  Owner Krista Smith's images are super adorable, and she is always adding new ones to her shop.  We are also celebrating our fearless leader Regan's birthday this month.  So in honor of Miss Regan, and all the other Leo's out there, the challenge this fortnight is to make a birthday card.  Easy, right?  This may ruin the surprise a little, but I decided to make this one for Regan.  Since I have dubbed her "Queen of Embellishments", I threw all caution to the wind and just went crazy (for me) with embellies.  I started out with Usherette from the Saturated Canary shop.  (I just realized as I am writing this that the whole reason I picked this image was because I had popcorn paper, and forgot to use it!  LOL).  She is colored with Copics.  The filmstrip behind her was found just with a Google search, and I added glossy accents to the black part to give it more dimension.  Both the filmstrip and Usherette are popped up with 3D Dots.  It's hard to see but I used some red netting at the bottom of the filmstrip, and made a flower using the scraps (over on the left there).  This was a ton of fun to make, and I hope it is worthy of the Queen ;-)

Papers:  Recollections (background and polka dots), DCWV Lady Couture Stack (red stripes), and Rockstar Stack (the stars).
Embellies:  Recollections + WOC Roses, Recollections brads, Ribbon and rhinestone swirls.  Queen + Co pearls.  Simplicity Christmas trim.  Tim Holtz idea-ology Adage Ticket.

Sketch was an older one from Tickled Pink Challenges:
My mother's birthday is the same day as Regan's, and my Aunt's was August 1st so I have been a busy crafter!  I'm sure you all know someone who is celebrating their birth soon, be sure to join in the fun for a chance to win some Saturated Canary digis to play with.  Be sure to check out the rest of the team's fantabulous creations over at The Corrosive Challenge.

Happy Birthday!

A gorgeous card and Regan will love it! You did a great job with the coloring. Since you forgot the popcorn paper, it gives you a great excuse to use the adorable image again! I love it! Great job!!! By the way, you colored her hair perfectly! Super job!

I LOVE!!!! Thank you so much for this exquisite piece of art work! You are such a sweet and thoughtful friend! I was so excited to receive this fabulously embellished beauty in the mail! It is definitely worthy of royalty! ;)
PS So cool that your mom and I share a birthday! Please give her birthday wishes for me from a fellow Leo!
