April Birthday

Hello! I am here today to bring you this week's Serendipity Stamps DT challenge. This week we were challenged to create a birthday card using one of the month stamps from Serendipity's Illustrated Months set. I love these - one of these days I *will* make the calendar I've had on my list!

I chose to make my card with the image for the month of April. We were given this sketch to work with:

And here is my card:

I followed the sketch pretty much to the letter, just couldn't resist putting my month image right there in that oval spot. Part of the image was paper pieced and other parts were colored with my Copics.

Here is the inside, using the It's That Time and the Happy Birthday sentiments. No reason why I can't use a Christmas sentiment for a birthday, no? I mean, a birthday comes around once a year too!

The Illustrated Month stamps are available in two sizes (the one I used on my card is the larger size). They are available individually or in a set; they are also available in Cling Sets with coordinating sentiments. Go check them out, the illustrations are really adorable!

I'm so glad you stopped by today, please be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see their take on the challenge!

Also, don't forget to check the current contests on the Serendipity Stamps Blog and take some time to sign up for the newsletter (and sale announcements)!
