Two Challenges in One!

I'm so enjoying spending more time in my craft room and getting back to doing some challenges.  I didn't have enough time to do two different projects for the 2 challenges due by Wednesday, so I decided to combine them.  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week is a "Birthday" themed project and the Kraftin' Kimmie Wednesday challenge is "anything goes"

For this project I decided to grab one of my favorite Kraftin' Kimmie stamps "Alice" and create a birthday card.  I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored it with copics (B0000, B000, Boo, Bo1, B02, B05, Y21, Y23, Y26, E0000, E00, E01, E02, R02 & N7) & added a little shimmer with a "sky star" gelly roll pen. 

I masked off the image and created the back ground clouds with a plastic template (handmade) and some tumbled glass distress ink sponged on.  It is really hard to tell in the picture but both white background pieces have the clouds on them.  I added some diamond stickles to the sponged clouds in the background. For the die cut clouds I used the Simon Says Cloud die and cut them up.  

The greeting is from the Simon Says Birthday Balloons stamp set (MFT hybrid ink pad - steel grey). I liked that the curve of the stamp, it seemed to match the curve in the clouds (although it isn't easy to tell that from the picture).  Finished it off with a few plain rhinestones in the corners and one on her hair bow.

Well, I think I covered everything I used for this card.  I'm sure I will come back and edit this post at least twice.  Once again I am typing this out after midnight which usually means I ramble and make many errors 😏

Thanks for stopping by!
