Party Hearty! CCMC272, RS#85

Happy Tuesday... again!  This is my second post for the day... scroll down to see my post for Stampin' Celebration!  I had a little time to make a card while my sweetie was at preschool, and here's what I did!  A card for my nephew who will turn 9 on Thursday!

For this  card I played along with the colour challenge at Create With Connie and Mary and used the sketch from RetroSketches!  It worked perfectly for this card!

I actually started this card in MDS!  I used one of the talking bubbles from the Lemonade Stand stamp brush kit, took the 'party hearty!' stamp brush from the Party Hearty stamp brush set, cropped each word to orientate one underneath the other, made it bigger to fit in the talking bubble (ignored the pixelation warning!  it's totally fine!) and... Voila!  Print! (after changing the colours of course!)  I cut it out using my paper trimmer, rounded the corners and cut carefully around the little arrow thing-y at the bottom!  Then I started using my 'real stuff' to finish it off!  Neat-o, huh?

Check out the challenge sites... they always have great stuff going on.


Hopefully my nephew will love his card... I know he is super excited about his birthday this week!  Nine is super important... next to ten of course, which is double digits!  

Thanks for looking!  Hopefully I'll have some more time later to make yet another card!  Off to pick up my sweetie!

WOW...what a totally FUN card! I would have never used a 'grunge' look with the color combo but you really rocked it! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
