TGIF Challenges Turns TWO! Let's Celebrate!

We are celebrating a birthday over at TGIF Challenges today!  We are TWO years old already as a challenge site.  I remember playing along with the first challenge - it was a color challenge and I submitted two different cards.  But what is really neat is that Stampin' Up! had both of my cards featured on their homepage!  I may not have won the challenge over at TGIF, but the highlight from SU was huge for me! Fast forward two years and here I am as a design team member.
So much fun!

So since we are celebrating a birthday, we have a fitting challenge theme this week!  Click on the image below to go to our homepage to see the rest of the design team's creations and join the fun this week!

For this challenge I decided to make a birthday card.  It's a little stretch from the "party" theme - but a birthday is a reason to party - so it fits!

This card was actually cased almost to the T from the new catalog.  I won the Special Celebrations stamp set at OnStage earlier this month.  It's a wonderful stamp set with sentiments for both the front and inside of the card.

The flowers are from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set.  If you've followed me for awhile, you may remember that I'm not much of a floral stamp set fan, but this set is my favorite floral set.

I added some Brights Enamel Shapes - both Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.

When I made a second card, I decided to add a little bling instead.  (I was also short on the Bermuda Bay enamel shapes!)  I actually like both looks.  

A little shabby and chic - which one do you like best?

I hope that you like the cards I shared with you today.  Please head on over to TGIF Challenges and check out all of the fabulous creations the team made!  You won't be disappointed!

Have a wonderful weekend!
