Challenge #180 - It's Only A Number AND an 80's to the Max Birthday Blog Hop

Like, oh my god!  We have, like, a totally bitchin' new challenge this week at The Corrosive Challenge!  It's Regan's 40th birthday this week and to celebrate we have teamed up with sponsor Sassy Studio Designs to bring you a totally awesome, 80's to the Max, birthday blog hop!  There are LOTS of ways to win!

Our challenge this fortnight is a birthday one with a twist: "It's Only A  Number" - create a birthday themed project which includes a number on it.  EVERYONE who enters will receive a special Sassy Studio Designs image for FREE!  If you use a SSD image you will receive a bonus entry for the grand prize!  Simply enter a second link to your general blog with your name and "SSD" after it!  Want another reason to play along?  Our Top 3 this fortnight will also win a prize!  Each Top Pick will receive two images from the new SSD 80's release!
I was totally psyched to be able to work with "Flashdance Sassy".  Who doesn't love this movie, and the "Maniac" song?  If it wasn't summertime, I probably would have donned my red knit legwarmers while I made my card (Yes, I really own legwarmers).

She is colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped up with foam dots.  At first, I really wanted to incorporate sweatshirt somehow, then I started digging in my closets and found some old headbands and had an "aha!" moment.  So I cut one up and gave her a sweatband.  Totally tubular, dude!

I also wanted to try out something new (to me), and went with a step card, which I have never done before, but will definitely do again!  My numbers are incorporated in my paper, and though it isn't specifically birthday related per se, I do think I'll have to pass this along to our honoree, Regan for her birthday!  She may not be a maniac on the dance floor anymore (except maybe at a Bon Jovi concert), but she sure is a crazy crafter sometimes!

Lindsay, the owner and artist behind Sassy Studio Designs, has created a whole collection of 80's themed images as her August release just for this occasion!  These images are so much fun and will bring you right back to the decade of distinctive pop culture, music, and trends!  The winner of our challenge this fortnight will win the ENTIRE SSD 80's COLLECTION!!!  (Can't wait to win them?  You can purchase them HERE now!)  To see all the gorgeous images being featured by our two righteous design teams, please join us for Regan's birthday blog hop!  The Sassy and Corrosive dudes and dudettes have designed some most excellent projects for you!  A random comment will be selected from each blog to win that featured image!  The more blogs you visit and comment on, the more chances to win you have!  Here is the complete list:
