is the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week.
This is a birthday card I made for one of my grandsons. The background was created with two Hero Arts wood mounted stamp sets that I have had for years. I used Brilliance inks because it is much easier to get a solid stamped image with these pigment inks. Since my son's family got a puppy last year (I guess he's not a puppy anymore), I used this cute stamp from Simon Says that I won from Tiffany Erwin for Ethan's card. The puppy was colored with Prismacolor pencils. I added a party hat and some sparkly gems to lend a festive touch. The sentiment is from Wplus9.
I am also entering this card in THIS challenge, since the puppy stamp has never before been used:
And, I'm also sending it over to the challenge at Seize the Birthday:
