Challenge #103 Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

This is my card for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Challenge #103 Are you talking to me??? We were challenged to use a stamp with words that would convey your meaning! My first choice was the House Mouse chewing on a pencil but I left the "word" stamp in Michigan that said "DON'T ASK! It's been one of those days!!" so I went to my second choice of Happy Birthday. This image was from my mother's stash from our friend Betty Bee at Betty Bee's Buzz who had a birthday party to celebrate my mom's 99th birthday at her March Swarm. I used my copics that I'm just learning to use, thanks to classes from Betty Bee.
I did a trifold card that I cut, folded and then put thru my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday folder. I put it thru sideways and use LOTS of muscles! The inside paper is from Joanne's and I thought reminded me of birthday cake with yummy frosting and candy sprinkles. I used Martha Stewart Double loop punch round the corner on both the yummy frosting paper inside and the front back drop for the birthday cake!
Thanks for a great challenge! check out the other cards at Stampacular Sunday Challenge!


  1. Wow, fab embossing and a super cute stamp. You did a marvelous job of coloring; clearly you are a better student of Betty's than I am :) She's a great teacher, isn't she?

    I purchased those MS punches on clearance last fall. You just reminded me that I should use them! So pretty!
