It's YOUR Celebration! - CYCI38

Last week I created a card (here) using the baby wipe technique and I had such fun with it that I had to do it again! Isn't it a GREAT way to dress up a card?!?

This yummy pattern paper is from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper. At first I had NO idea what to do with it, but with the baby wipe technique I was able to easily blend the colors from the paper and include them in one image. Really. Just one stamp and no extra tools......EZ Peasy!

The new Spiral Border Punch is such a quick way to add a bit of pizzazz to a project. A touch of ribbon and a lovely Candy Dot finish the card off perfectly.

I hope you will pop on over to the Can You Case It Challenge Blog and see what the other designers have cooked up for you! I hope you love what you see and join us!

I borrowed the Life's Adventure stamp set from a friend recently and thought that the sketch this week over at Retro Sketches would be a perfect companion to my retro, kitschy bicycle stamp:

And then, when teamed up with these fun patterns from the Flashback Designer Series Paper, winner, winner, chicken dinner!

I love this bicycle and the sentiment! The bicycle would be fun as a stand alone image and you would be able to add lots of different sentiments, but it's so fun with this sentiment! Perfect for anyone starting out on a new adventure: moving to a new city; taking a new job or new apartment; or as in my case, a college grad starting their adult journey!

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the stamped just the flag again in Real Red, snipped it out, and added it to my card. I think it's a fun accent. The rest of the card is pretty straightforward, no explanation needed. I did have to raid my retired stash for the Real Red and Pool Party buttons, but that's okay because the whole feel here is retro :)
