Challenge #185 - Birthdays

Hi All!

Welcome to the newest Paper Girls Challenge.  It's Kristy, back with your challenge.  Today is my birthday, so guess what theme I thought would be perfect for us?  BIRTHDAYS! I can't wait to see what birthday creations you came up with!

First of all, we would like to introduce our guest designer for this challenge, Birgit Johansson, and her gorgeous project!

My name is Birgit Johansson and I live in Sweden with my family. I make creations in every style, from cute to elegant, from CAS to vintage, from watercolor to recycling. There is always something new to learn and I often look at other people's blogs to find inspiration. For various reasons, I had to start a new blog a couple of months ago, you can find it at Cards R Fun, but I have added a link to my old blog too and you are welcome to make a visit. Cards R Fun

My Birthday card was made with some different spray colors and stencils for the background. I used the stamp Henry the mouse - Adventures with a friend from Whiff Of Joy and I colored them up with my Copics. I also used sentiment dies from Sizzix Tim Holtz Hanwritten Celebrate set. For more details please visit my blog at: Cards R Fun

Thank you SO much for joining us to guest design, Birgit! We love your beautiful card!

For my card, I decided to make a masculine birthday card to add to my collection.  I never seem have those on hand when I need them.  Now I'm ready.  ;-)

Here are a few other birthday projects from the Paper Girls!

Make a Wish ~ Make it Happen!

I love challenges like this because they give me the chance to get my birthday card supply stocked up! Here are three cards I created for this challenge.

I documented my daughter's last 5 birthday parties.

I created a birthday card for a special someone.
