Stamp and Doodle Birthday

Well, since I am in need of lots of birthday cards in March I decided to work on a card I felt would work for any age or gender. It reminds me of a party and even if only a party on a card I think it conveys the atmosphere of a celebration! I used digital stamps from Beccy's Place Hat's Off Set. I printed the outlined party hat and the sentiment onto yellow card stock from Gina K. Designs and from there I added color and doodling with my Bic markers. Once I had the design like I wanted it I then layered it to a base card of Lipstick card stock from Gina K. Designs. Inside I added a sheet of white for the inside sentiment and greeting. 


I am entering this in the Double D Challenge-Book Cover. I took my inspiration from the frames on all of the samples in the photo.

And I know I am not a good doodler but I still like how it looks. The doodling was an afterthought when I felt the party hats were too dull all alone. 

Well, I hope all of you are having a good week. We are enjoying temperatures in the 50's these last couple days and it sounds like all week will be warm like that. But we won't put our winter coats away yet as the next week is once again cooling off and getting back to more normal temperatures for March. Also some precipitation is predicted too! But we will enjoy it while we can.

Take care and God bless,

Verna

A party card it is! Very fun. Take care and enjoy the sun, we are having similar day temps but freezing lows at night. As long as the sun is out, I'm a happy camper :o)

This is a fun, happy card with the images and colors. The doodles just added to the fun. It's warming up here too, but a cold front will come through again.
