Happy Birthday, Stamping Dragon, Part 3!

Time for yet another event, in our week long celebration of Stamping Dragon's Birthday! And what better way to celebrate a birthday, than with lots of birthday cards! So, we are challenging you to make a birthday card in honor of our birthday. As a special bonus, Janette, from Stamping Dragon, has created a special digi stamp in celebration of our birthday. It is called Rupert's party, and you can purchase it in their store for a limited time, for only 99 cents. (See image below)

You don't have to use the image above to make us a birthday card for our birthday challenge. You can use any stamp, as long as your card is a birthday card. To play along with us, head on over to Beth's Blog, where you will find the wonderful Mr Linky, to enter your card. You don't want to miss out! Beth has a special prize for the winner of our birthday card Challenge.

Here is my card, for our birthday celebration:

I love to use sketches for creating my cards, and this time I used a combintion of them! I used the Sketch (#78) from Card Patterns, the sketch from Papercraft Star and the sketch from PaperPlay. All papers are from my stash. I decided to be different, and make a spinner card. You can see where there is a white scallop tab on the right side of the striped box. This is the tab you turn to make the sentiments rotate in the window. The green metal brad in the center holds the message wheel in place. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to punch the flowers and the flower border. The pink flower in the center is from K & C company and is pop dotted for dimension. This was a fun card to make.

In case you missed it, it isn't too late to play along in our "Name the paper pack and win it" contest and our "Guess How Many" contest.
