Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #140...Birthdays

Hello to all my friends and readers out there in blogland! I'm here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #140, the theme is Birthdays. I do believe that it is the month of birth for both Pattie, the owner and designer of Pattie's Creations, and her sister Sandi, who happens to be our past Team Leader. So it is the perfect month to be celebrating the theme of birthdays! Happy birthday Pattie and Sandi and to anyone else celebrating a birthday in November!

I also wanted to say a special thank you to Sandi for being such a great team leader these past 3 and a half years that I've been with the team. Sandi has stepped away from the team to take on new adventures in life. I wish her all the best!

Now on to my card. I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date.


Digital Image Details:
  • Happy Birthday Bear: A rather adorable image. You can find it in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the image name or watermark linked below.
    • Coloured digitally. Credits include:
      • Bear is paper pieced with a fur texture from My Free Textures. I've just changed the colour to suit the purposes of this particular card. 

Digital Embellishments:
  •  The ribbon is from the Another Teaparty kit created by Correen Silke available at {Computer}
  • One of the buttons is from the General Accessories section of my Tag Grab Bag 1: Cotton Candy Collection. This section is available for purchase in the full bundle available in the Scribbles Designs store. You can find it HERE.

  • The remaining buttons are from the Buttons, Bows & Brads section of my Mommy Dearest Kit. This section is available for purchase in the full bundle available in the Scribbles Designs store. You can find it HERE.


Digital Sentiment Details:
  • The sentiment is from Paulette from Create with TLC. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store. This sentiment was recoloured for the purposes of this card. 

Digital Paper Products:
  • The paper used for the background on the front and inside, is a FREEBIE available on my blog. Click the preview image below to find it.

Digital Embellishment Details:
  •  I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the image and sentiment.
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.

Challenges I am hoping to enter...

You have until Nov. 30th to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done. Remember the theme is Birthdays. I really hope that you will be able to join us. You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules). In addition to all the typical criterion, you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN!  Easy Peasy right?!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration. Oh and don't forget…Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Well guys, that is it for this one. Hopefully I will see you all very soon.

Until next time,
