Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Challenge!

                  Stella Bugaboo Stamps

Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating their 1st Birthday today, and their challenge is to create a birthday card.  I’m a new kid on the block as far as Bugaboo Stamps go, and I have to say it was “love at first sight”!   This stamp is called Stella Aged To Perfection”, and I think she is just a hoot!  I am making this card for a wonderful lady who will be 95 years young this month, and I think she will get a kick out of Stella.

I colored the image with Copics, but paper pieced her hat and balloon.  The designer paper is from Kaiser Craft and it’s called Blushed.  The lace is done with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The sentiment comes with the digital image.  I used the Romance Embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  I also added some glaze to her glasses to make them shine and give them some depth (hard to see in the picture).

Other Challenges:
The Shabby tea Room – Week #44 Sketch This!
The Creative Cottage – Challenge Something New (Digital Image and DP)
Totally Paper Crafts – Challenge #49 Happy Birthday!
Polly Craft Monday – Challenge #75 New Things (Digital Image and DP)
