Robyn's Fetish and Lexi's Creations Challenges

The challenge at Robyn's Fetish this week is to use pastel colors, and at Lexi's Creations they want us to use our punches and/or diecuts. I used lots of both to make this fun birthday card for a close friend recently. If you know me or my style, you know I LOVE to use humor in my cards. This set I won from Skipping Stones cracks me up. It is perfect for so many women I know, including myself. I stamped, paperpieced and cut out the front cake and layered it on a beautiful diecut from Memory Box. I added a couple punched out candles to the sentiment on the front.

The inside has a fun surprise when you open it up- the birthday cake pops up on a diecut from Papertrey. I again stamped, paperpieced and cut out this cake from the same set and added the funny punch line below it. The top punched wish is a border punch from Martha Stewart.

Stamping smiles, Karen
