This little digi is not free, but I like her anyway.  She is from the Saturated Canary.  I am loving the ditial stamps! 

Why am I making so many birthday cards? you may ask.   We are having a monthly birthday party for all of the girls at work, and then as close to their birthday, I am giving them each a unique card in their color(s) of choice. 

As my friend's birthday is on the 13th of Feb, so I ended up using this little girl with hearts and colored her with copics.  The colors are askew here, I see.  I can tell as the boots look red, but are really a rusty-brown.  I added glossy accents to all of the hearts.  I cut out the frames from Elegant Edges on my Expression and then ran the outer part through my Big Shot with a CuttleBug folder.  The texture really changed the look of the whole thing!  The red portion is SU! card stock and the inner portion with the flowers is a Glitz paper.  I went digging in my goodies and found those red skittles?  I added some gold cord around the frame where the two pieces meet.  That was the hardest part of the whole card!  I then added some flowers as it felt a little naked.

I used rub-ons for the Happy Birthday (now only about 2 million rub-ons to go!  lol!) and then cut out two layers with SU! punches.  The background paper is "funkadelic" and I wish I knew who's it was.  I liked it so much I picked up two pieces of it one at two different times from my stash to use while making this card!  lol!  I used a white marker on the brown for stitching and brown dots on the kraft card stock. 

The inside has been cone as well.  I am happy with the overall look of this card!

How is it possible to keep using your stash and never seem to make a dent?  That is why I joined the "using my stash" thread.  I hope it will really encourage me to keep digging in!

If you stop by and have a challenge blog or know of a fun one, please let me know.  I find it a wonderful opportunity to force myself to keep going!  The challenges are a lot of fun and I'd love to come play along with you!
