Two Challenges in One

Hello Everyone!!! Last night started off kinda yucky for me. When I was leaving work I got a flat tire and it took road side service FOREVER to arrive and get the spare put on. But I did get home and was able to relax with the family for a bit before they went to bed. Then I went into my craft room for a little down time and created this card. It is for this weeks Digital Tuesdays Sweet Birthday Challenge and Nutshells Man/Boy Card using Blue & Green Challenge. The best part of all it is a card that I needed to get done for my Brother's birthday which was actually on Monday. (ooops) The card qualified for DTC 's with the tiny cupcake that the dog has. The image is from The Digi Shack and is called Doggone Bday. I colored the digi with copics, added clear glaze to his eyes and the cupcake's frosting to make the white more crisp, and a touch of glitter on the candle and cupcake liner for a little sparkle. I kept it pretty clean & simple since it is a masculine card. But, as you can see I did sneak a bit of ribbon out of habit. Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful Thursday! :D


Paper: SU Brocade Blue CS Navy Bazzill CS, Green DCWV CS, DCWV DP

Stamps: Doggone Bday Digital Image (The Digi Shack)

Tools: Small Classic Rectangle Nestabilities
