Birthday Cards 4 Kids Challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is Birthday Fun 4 Kids! Create and link any birthday card for a child and you could win one of our great prizes.

We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Bugaboo is giving their winner 7 digis of their choice!  Lacy Sunshine is giving their randomly picked winner 3 digis!  And Fred She Said’s winner gets a $10 gift certificate! TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.

My first birthday card above features Pickles and the Love Cupcake from Lacy Sunshine. I paper pieced him and his yummy cupcake and popped him up over a background I created with a stitched wavy border die. I printed the sentiment, cut it out with deckle scissors and attached. 
I think lots of kids like word searches and puzzles and so they would love this card with "Word Search Birthday Boy" by Bugaboo. I highlighted "smiles", did a little coloring and paper pieced his outfit and balloons. The card is an easel card and stands up to reveal the Happy Birthday sentiment which is a popped up border punch by Martha Stewart.
I am entering these cards in the Birthday challenges at Aud Sentiments and Fresh Brewed and the Design Team Showcase.

Great cards, Karen! Love the critter popping up out of the cupcake on the first. And the word search idea is so neat. Wonderful easel card! Good job on the paper piecing, too. I never thought to paper piece digi images. I may have to give that a try. Tfs! ~ Andrea

A clever idea using a find-a-word puzzle as the front of your easel card. It's sure to keep some child busy and happy. Thanks for sharing with us at Aud Sentiments this fortnight and hope to see you again soon.
Hugs,
Sandy
