Three card challenges in one!

I needed to make a quick birthday card for my daughter's boyfriend whose birthday is today! I managed to knock over 3 challenges in one for the card!

I used this week's Cuttlebug Challenge of sand the embossing - I used Black Magic Core'dinations and sanded it back to reveal the turquoise core.

The 2nd challenge is using the CPS sketch #98

The 3rd challenge is the Papertake Weekly one, Seeing Spots - use spots, dots or circles on your card. I used the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots embossing folder, spotted Designer Paper, put some dots around the oval layer with a white Signo gel pen, used some round brads and pricked some dots around the aqua layer.....and used a red Kaiser gem for the bird's eye!


The Happy Birthday stamp is by Penny Black, the arrow stamp is by October Afternoon. The black glitter bird sticker is from The Sticker Cafe. Ink is Impress Teal dye ink, I inked up the stamp with Versamark, then the Impress Teal so I could clear emboss it. The ovals are cut with Nestabilities dies.

...hope it doesn't look too girly for him!
