C4C1 - Happy Birthday

Today I made a card participating in the NEW Crazy 4 Challenges group. I found this challenge through Barbara of Paper Pursuits. I met Barbara this year at CHA Orlando while we waited in the Papertrey Ink line. I looked up her blog when I got home and became a follower. She is on the design team for C4C. This is their first challenge, which come out on Saturdays, and I was actually able to play along today!

The best thing for me with this card is I used all of my scraps! Yee haw! I used my scallop punches for the cirlces and a DeNami stamp - colored with Le Plumme markers. I used a scrap piece of ribbon that's been floating around my work table too! I cut the tag with Sizzix die and used a Penny Black sentiment! The card base is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and the scallop measures it up to 5 1/2. This card is for my cousin Chris who's birthday is on the 9th. We're going over for cake later on this evening - so this challenge came at a great time!

Thanks for looking! Hope you are all having a GREAT holiday weekend :)

Is there a reason the card for Chris has a turtle on it? Perhaps because he's slow with something?
