Card Design: FBD Blog Candy Challenge Reminder for March

Hey guys, I am here today to remind you all about the Blog Candy Giveaway Challenge that is going on over at Fresh Brewed Designs. Don't forget, for the whole year in 2014 we will be having ONE blog candy challenge per month. 

There is still time to enter and win in this month's challenge.  Remember this particular challenge is ANYTHING GOES using an FBD image 

For each entry, you must: 
  • Create a NEW card using an FBD image (Digi or Rubber Stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs).
  • Can enter up to 3 times each.
  • MUST post CANDY badge (the one up top) on your sidebar, linking it back to Freshly Brewed Challenges and add this blog candy photo below in EACH post with your card, with a link back to the March blog candy challenge post.
    For all the details including the link up, please click HERE or on the badge above.
Here is a card that I have created to help inspire you...

Digital Image Details: 
  • Birthday Girl and Birthday Cupcake:  The main image on the front is Birthday Girl and then I also added Birthday Cupcake to the inside of the sentiment.  Both of these images are currently available in the FBD store.  You can find them by clicking on the image name or watermarks below.
    •  I used Copics to colour both images in and chalk to ground Birthday Girl.
Digital Sentiment: 
  • A Birthday Wish circle:  A fabulous sentiment from the great Desert Diva herself, Hannelie!  I've picked up oodles of free sentiments from her and she does fabulous CAS cards as well.  If you'd like to check out her blog you can find it HERE.
  • The sequins are Crafts brand purchased at Dollarama.
Embossing Folder:
  • The large dots on the yellow and blue circles were created with a Goosebumpz embossing folder. 
Cricut Cartridge:
  • The circles were cut using the George Basic Shapes cartridge.

Digital Sentiment: 
  • This fabulous sentiment that I use over and over again was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.

Paper Products: 
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Designer Papers:   
    • Both of the patterned papers used are from the Recollection's All Girl paper pad. 
    • The shimmery white used as matting behind the image and the cardstock used for the circles on the front, along with the yellow piece used on the inside for matting behind the sentiment are all Michael's open stock cardstock.

Exactly the inspiration I needed to make a due birthday card. She's colored beautifully and I love the chalk you used to ground her. Just got back from the POP blog and picked up some of your freebie sentiments...THANK YOU! Love how you make those. :)
hugs to you and happy hump day.
