Birthday Cheer -- SCRSC04

Hello everyone! I haven't had much of a chance to blog surf the past couple of weeks as we've been busy with various summer activities and trips (and sometimes no internet access). We are taking one final family summer trip, then I should be back in the routine once school starts in a couple of weeks. I do appreciate all of you who take the time to visit!

It's time another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! Thanks to all of you who played along last week! Each week we will post an all new challenge at this time (9 PM PST on Monday). For all the details, please visit the SCRS blog. The challenge for this week is a challenge to use your favorite embellishment.

I used Scooter Chloe for my creation today. When asked, it's always tough for me to name my favorite embellishment since I love so many. I went back through my cards for the past few months and noticed that I tend to put ribbon on most of my cards. I colored Chloe with Copic markers and used one of my go-to layouts. For embellishments, I used my Bow Easy to make a double bow and added a button with twine to the center of it. I finished off my card with some stitching all around.

For more inspiration, please visit the SCRS blog to see the design team's wonderful creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
