Have a magical day - C4C #58

Today's Crazy 4 Challenges is all about birthdays. Our very own Silke is hosting today and since her birthday is this month, she's challenging us to make a birthday card! And, we're honored to be sponsored by Verve Stamps again this week. Julee has generously donated another prize so be sure to check out the C4C blog for the deets!

To help my girl Silke celebrate, I've used an older, but still one of my favorite, Verve sets, Birthday Surprise. And I'm using Mojo Monday #159 for my layout.

I stamped the balloon images and colored them with Copic markers, cut them out, and popped them up. I think the rest is pretty simple--stamped sentiment, punched border, pretty layers, silky ribbon :)

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C58.

Thanks so much for dropping in today!
