Great Impressions February Challenge ...

Good morning! We have a new Challenge starting today over at the Great Impressions BlogThis month our challenge is called "Let's Celebrate (Any Celebration)". The perfect theme as we Celebrate Super Bowl Sunday here in the US.

I created a Birthday Card for this month's challenge. My family is not only Celebrating Super Bowl Sunday here in the US, but we are also Celebrating my Father-in-Law's 80th Birthday today. This is the card I made for him. 

My card features the adorable Seashore Buddies G488 and Happy Birthday Sentiment (B247). I had an awesome time coloring up the Seashore Buddies with my Copic Markers, and did a bit of paper-piecing to add dimension to the stamped image. A bit of distress ink was applied behind the seagull which adds a bit more dimension to my stamped design. 

Make sure you head on over to the Great Impressions Challenge Blog to see what the other Designer's created, and for all of the details on how you can WIN this lovely collection of Great Impressions Stamps! If you use our Great Impressions Stamps remember to link them up in our Customer Gallery.
