Bye Bye Birthday

Hi all.... I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  Mine was a little less productive than planned but that was due to our entire house coming down with the flu. But thankfully we are all feeling much better today and I was finally able to get a little crafting in.

I created this birthday card using this adorable digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Bye Bye. I started with a red card base. I cut a piece of turquoise card stock, backed it in white and added it to the card base.  I cut a strip of striped patterned paper, backed it in red card stock and then again in white card stock. I added that to the bottom of my card. I embossed a piece of white card stock using a Cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and backed it in red card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens.  I stamped the sentiment out onto white card stock and backed both the sentiment and the image in red card stock.  I finished the card by adding red jellies to the corners of the card and image.

The current challenge at Polkadoodles is a case it challenge.  I choose to case a card from Week 10 Digi Queens inspiration post. I chose to use the sketch from this gorgeous card (below) created by Pami.

Nothing sweeter than a Mo image - especially for a Send a Smile 4 Kids card. They are perfect. I love the sketch you chose to use too as well as the color choices and embossing. Thanks for entering this with SAS4Kids this week and we'd love to see you back next challenge.
