Something to Celebrate


Happy weekend everyone!  Today I have a card to share which uses an oldie but goodie (pre-colored) image and sentiment from the Doodle Pantry set called New Happy Birthday B.  This image has always been one of my favorites, and I am loving how it looks against the 3 blue coordinating papers from the new Doodle Pantry Baby Basics Paper Pack .  Talk about a deal;  you get 3 different patterns in 5 different colors -- a total of 15 sheets of digi paper -- for just $2!   Look what's included:


Wondering how I combined the image, oval and sentiment on the digi paper?  It's very easy to do!  I opened a Word document ; then copied and pasted the digi paper into the document -- formatted the 'picture" to "wrap behind the text".  Next, I inserted an oval shape over the digi paper --  formatted  the shape to  wrap "in front of text'.  Then I added my sentiment inside the oval -- formatted to wrap "in front of text".  Last, my image was copied and pasted into the document overtop both the paper and oval; again, I formatted the 'picture' to "wrap in front of text".   Told you it was easy peasy!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamp Something May Digi Challenge -- Use something digi on you project.  (I used a digi image, sentiment and papers.)
Creative Inspirations Challenge 10 -- Embossing  (I embossed the card base with a Sizzix EF.)
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge -- Give us a Quote/Sentiment
Inspire Me Fridays 5 -- Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet Challenge # 8 -- Diecuts or Punches (I used both.)

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Hope all the stamping mamas have a very Happy Mother's Day!

Supplies:  Digital image and sentiment -- Doodle Pantry New happy Birthday B set; Paper -- SU! whisper white, certain celery, pumpkin pie, Doodle Pantry Baby Basics Paper Pack, Letterpress A2 card; Ink -- computer; Accessories -- Sizzix embossing folder, Spellbinders die, Marvy flower punches in 2 sizes, Recollections epoxy dots, dimensionals.
