VCMP Challenge 5&6

Operation Write Home's Star and Stamps blog is having a Virtual Card Making Party. There are two challenges each night. "This challenge is a simple and fun one. Create a BIRTHDAY CARD. " This card also works for the Craft Your Passion Challenge #96 -

My card boldly features a digital stamp from Sliekje Designs the sentiment is made in word. The cardstock is Bazzill. The ribbon is from Michaels. The bling is g studio. The corner punch is fiskars. The inks is my copic marker in pale blue. There is glaze accent on the tape on the box and his eyes to make them pop.

Who would not want this cutie surprising them on their birthday?

"For today's second challenge we're headed down to the shore for a color challenge that we're calling SAND & SEA - USE BLUES & TANS (any and all shades). Any theme or sentiment is fine so long as you use blues & tans." from the Stars and Stamp blog.

The card stock is again Bazzill. The patterned paper is Colorbok Rosewood. I wanted to use the image from the paper and play with layers. The first layer is tan Bazill. Then blue Bazzill cardstock. Then the patterned paper. The ribbon layers is a blue ribbon then cardstock in tan cut with the Martha Stewart scallops. Then a pretty blue ribbon with a bow. The sentiment is from word and is distressed with cocoa chalk in. The blue bling is g studio.
