Creative Bug Digis
Prize: 10 Free Digital Files Winner's Choice

Tabitha's Designs
Prize: Digital Paper Pack Winners Choice

Here's what I created for this challenge: 
Since this month was my birthday, I decided to make birthday cards.
One for me and the other is for a friend, who celebrates her birthday the same day as I do.
I recently became a fan of "Kadoodle Bug Designs". If you are on FB look out for her
Super Cute files. Love them!!!! I was able to grab this Cutie Pie "Summer Breeze Sabrina".
The Birthday Cupcake is a file from "Miss Kate Cuttables".
For the shape of my card, I used my crafty BFF (gypsy) and "Life's a Party" cartridge.
I hid the guitar feature, copied and welded the shapes to make the base of my card.
I also made a extra smaller shape for the top portion of my card.
Now, I dressed my birthday girls with Tabitha's Digital Paper Pack.
If you have not stopped by Tabitha's blog, please do so and check out all the other adorable digital paper that she sells. I placed pearls on my little girl's dresses, used a PK stamp for their smiles, with a large hole puncher I was able to cut out a small button from the digital paper, placed on the center of their flowers and a pearl. I used blue ink (distress) around my cards and a white gel pen (faux stitching). Used glossy accents on my candles, stamped birthday wishes and made
a gorgeous bow with crinkle ribbon (turquoise) that I won over at LSP and I also won the yellow ribbon over at Crafty Ribbons and placed a button on the center of each bows.

Please make sure you head over to 2CC to see what the
others have created and don't forget to link up your project.
Can't wait to see what you create!
