Hope your birthday is ...

Good morning and Happy Thursday everyone! I'm back with a brand NEW Dare to Be Sassy Thursday Challenge to share with all of you.

(let's see your creations that feature fancy folds)


This lovely lady is called Esmeralda Honey.  Once she was colored with my Copic Markers, I cut her out to pop on my oval dies!

Now for my card ... I don't create many Fancy Fold cards so I did some research by popping over to Splitcoastsstampers to search out different Fancy Folds.  I felt Esmeralda was the perfect fit for a Double Dutch Fold card.

Time to open the folds ...




While going thru my bling, I found these clusters of stars to surround Esmeralda, and then added some individual stars that I had in my stash along the bottom. The sentiment comes from CAS-ual Fridays Amazaballs stamp set.

When I made today's card it was with a purpose. My card is being mailed to little girl named Maci who lost her father in November last year, and she will be celebrating her first birthday without her him in her life. Graphicat Sketch's current Challenge is dedicated to Maci. Please go to the Graphicat Sketch's Challenge Blog for all of the details on how you can help make a little girl feel loved!

The rest of the Sassy Designers really WOWED me with their creations for this weeks Challenge, so you really NEED to head on over to the SSD Blog to check them out, and then throw in your hat for a chance to WIN some amazing Sassy images!

I'm submitting this card to the Graphicat Sketch's Challenge, Birthday Cards for Maci.

Until next time ... Enjoy!
