Happy Birthday---Sassy Cheryl's Challenge

Are you all ready for another great Sassy Cheryl's Challenge?!?  This week the awesomely talented Judy has chosen the theme, Make a Birthday Card for anyone...Now that is a great challenge AND I needed a birthday card for my sister...added bonus!!

Still going with the blue theme since the card is for my sister, Peg, who has a birthday on September 1, and her favorite color is blue.  The image is called Serving up Birthday Cake and I flipped it when I printed it so it was facing the opposite direction, That is harder to do with a rubber stamp LOL.
The image was colored with copic markers, the border at the bottom was cut with my cricut and the holes that were punched are the red circles used to embellish the corners, no reason to throw them away :)  The blue cs was punched with a MS border punch and the flowers in the lower right are cricut flowers layered.
A wide red/white striped ribbon  and red corner punch and my no calorie Birthday card is ready to send wtih the book mark I showed a couple of days ago.  Hope she likes them :)

We are all so happy that our Sassy Cheryl faired pretty well in the Hurricane that just pummuled the east coast and affected many of our DT members and friends.They just got their power back on tonight so not sure if there are any new images this week but I am sure you understand if there are not.

There will be some wonderful DT cards for you to see over at the Challenge Blog and someone will have won a gift Certificate, as a $5 gift certificate is given each week so be sure to grab an image and play along, .I am sure you know someone to make a Birthday card for.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!
