Happy Birthday - C4C #75

It's Crazy 4 Challenges day so it must be Saturday, right? ;-) Yep, it is, and today's challenge is brought to us by Angela Wood: to use dies. Um, yeah, I can do that :)

We also have a sponsor today - Paper Pretties Stamps. You can get all the deets at the C4C blog.

I decided to go kinda CAS with this card, but I used several dies.

I stamped an image from PTI's Turning a New Leaf with Versamark on Kraft for my card base. Next, I added a strip of Dark Chocolate, cut with the Medium Scalloped Border die and a Spiral Notebook Page element stamped with the receipt from It's Official. to qualify for PTI's Make-It Monday Challenge, I added a vellum strip with the sentiment from Butterfly Dreams stamped in Dark Chocolate. Finally, I added a felt flower cut with Beautiful Blooms I dies and some paper leaves cut with a die from Leaf Prints. I finished it off with a button and some twine. I'm not sure I like the vellum spanning the Rustic Cream and Dark Chocolate papers - but it is what it is ;-)

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 C4C75.
