Sweet Birthday Card

It is Saturday and that means a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want you to make vintage, shabby chic or primitive BIRTHDAY CARDS. I am not sure which style my card is so I will call it a cross between vintage and shabby chic. What I do know is that it has a great retro image from our sponsor this week, Phindy's Place.

Phindy is going to provide one random winner with a digi of their choice from her store. The random winner will also get a winner's badge. The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will also get a badge to display and will be in the running for the monthly Guest Designer spot.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Throwback Thursday - Project of your choice - must use Cricut cartridge (used Mother's Day Bouquet for Flowers and Leaves)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious - Lace
Party Time Tuesday's - Anything Goes
