PaperPlay Challenges Week 37

Good morning PaperPlayers!! How's your week been so far?! I've had three long days and BOY I'm ready for a day off. Not back in til Sunday! Yippeeee. :)
This week over at PaperPlay we want to see a combination of


on your project.

The prize up for grabs is one stamp from Whiff of Joy. Need any more reason to enter? Heehee. If you need a little inspiration stay tuned.. I got a card for ya.

I have used a die to create a circle in the background and a punch to create the edges of my banner shape. I have used various papers from Crate Papers Restoration collection to create a 'gamer' sort of theme for this card.

The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from Hero Arts has been stamped in Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink onto some woodgrain paper from the same paper collection. I have torn the bottom for some added texture and tied some lime green bakers twine around it. I've extended it off the side of the card by about 1/4" each side, I've seen this a lot around blog land lately and really liked the effect.

Here is a shot of the inside of the card. I've used a sentiment from LOTV on another die cut piece of More Mustard cardstock from SU! alongside two more domino pieces I have cut from a piece of patterned paper from the Restoration collection. The 'SON' up the side and on the front is from the Star Prints stamp set from PTI.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Crafting for All Seasons - Birthday
× Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday Time
× Cards for Men - Anything but Square
× Crafty Boots - Anything Goes
Head on over to the PaperPlay Challenge Blog NOW if you need some inspiration. The girls have got plenty for ya! ;)
