Celebrate Birthdays with Fussy and Fancy!!!

Good Friday morning dear friends!!!

Today at Fussy and Fancy we want you to celebrate birthdays with us!!!  Our challenge for the next two weeks will be all about "Birthdays" and we have a FABULOUS sponsor...Crafty Sentiments!!!!

I'm going with a cheery post today so NO WEATHER talk!!!

The beginning months of the year always signal MANY birthdays in our family...first it's MY baby Nicholas in January then his girlfriend Danielle & I in February, my husband...his is tomorrow, one of his sisters and my sister share a birthday later in March, then we finish off the month of March with my oldest son Derek and  my middle son Jordan on April 1st...yep their birthdays' are a day apart...well actually three years and one day...LOL!!!  We catch a breather until July...whew!!!

I decided to go with a feminine card as I'm in the mood for some girliness!!!  And I will give it to my sister!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a full screen closer view...
I am using one of our sponsor's darling images...
"Benson Bear Birthdays"...
I just LOVED this paper so was trying to design everything around not cutting into too much of the GORGEOUS pattern...LOL...

a closer view of the most darling "Benson Bear Birthday" digi by Crafty Sentiments...

I used my Prismas this time...I DO NEED practice...

I made the card in a five step style to accommodate "Happy"...
you can just see the "Birthday" sentiment on a side angle...
the large sentiment is our message to my sister for her birthday later in March...
all sentiments are computer generated...
So that is my contribution to our newest challenge at Fussy and must hop on over to visit my talented teamies!!!  You won't be disappointed...I saw some absolutely STUNNING projects!!!  We have a very diverse style something for everyone's creative palette!

  1. No Frantage and she is a BEAUTY! Look at all the work you have put into this card. I love how you made use of that adorable paper. You have added all these little details to your card that you really have to take some time to see it all. The little embroidery floss on the present is such a cute element.
