Happy Birthday Lindsay

Color Throwdown is celebrating 100 Challenges 


This week we are celebrating Lindsay's Birthday and she is too with a 34% off sale at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff whoo hoo!.  Happy  Birthday Lindsay and thank you for designing this awesome Steampunk Style set!  I was like a kid in a candy store when I saw this with so many awesome images! You will be seeing a lot more of this set here.  I had so much fun making this card, the hardest part was deciding which image to use, I wanted it to be just right.  I printed the bike images and Birthday sentiment on to the Certainly Celery cs, then used my favorite Stampin Up Texture Plates Kit 4 Distressed.  The circles were cut with Spellbinders Classic Circles Nestabilities, and I used my new Martha Stewart edge punch.  I love the little flower button I sewed onto the bow, it was part of an old jewelery kit my (now 25 yr old) daughter and I had made into necklace's back in the day!  My inspiration came from this weeks beautiful colors from Color Throwdown (100th challenge party, awesome prizes!) and the Just Us Girls sketch.   
Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog today to wish her a Happy Birthday and pick up your free stampYou will also want to see what  the talented LSS Design Team has made using stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, and remember the 34% off sale too!

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
Color Throwdown - Color combination
Just Us Girls - Sketch 
The Shabby Tea Room - Embossing
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  2. Diane, this is absolutely wonderful; I love all the components you've added - the old bicycle - what a great stamp! I love the globe with the words and the scalloped circle - it all goes perfectly. The button on the bow is darling - I love that sweet touch and the border behind it. Your cards are really sweet! ;)
