Blogger's Challenge #84: They Say it's Your Birthday!



Yesterday was Tom Selleck's birthday. He turned 64 years old...why do I care? Well, he was my first crush and the first poster of a "boy" that I hung in my bedroom back in the 80s. Some dates stick in my head and never leave and that happens to be one of them! Happy Birthday Tom!

It also happens to be that our challenge was birthdays for Blogger's Challenge! I kept it simple and quick! The Big Shot helped me look like I made a fancier card than I really did! I began with the Kraft card base. I added a strip of DSP from the Candy Lane collection. I then stamped the scallop circle die cut with the butterfly from Priceless and the Happy Birthday from the More Thoughts Simply Stampin Kit. After adhering the scallop to the card base, I added the flourishes from Priceless and after a touch of ribbon, my card was complete!



Be sure to see what the other BC members were up to this week! That's what I'll be doing in my spare time in the next couple of days!

Hugs!
