SOA Birthday Card


Last week I joined the group Stampin Out Alzheimer's. It was a great group of generous ladies who put on challenges and other fun events to raise money for Alzheimer's. Here is a card I made using one of the sketches from the group. It also fits a few other challenges. The first is for the Creative card crew. They'd like to see cards for kids! I think this new whimsy giraffe makes for a perfect boys birthday card!!! The next challenge is a recipe challenge from the pink elephant. I used 3 buttons from my stash, 1 sentiment from a retired SU set and then for the 2 layers....I interpreted that as each piece(the background, sentiment and image) has 2 layers(they were flexible on this part!!) The paper is from my safari mat stack and SU. The yummy chocolate satin ribbon is SU as well (I'm sooo excited to see what the new catty has for ribbon!!!) I also want to enter this one into the one stop craft challenge. Their challenge is for the boys!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
