Happy Birthday

** The newsletter can be found in the post below this one~

Today's Corrosive Challenges is all about Birthdays as Janet is celebrating hers- Happy B-day Janet! So we all created something birthdayish and hope you will join in and play along with us. Here's my card:

Doesn't that image just make you laugh out loud? I couldn't resist this cutie when I placed an order recently at Stamping Bella. I paired her with some Basic Grey paper and picked up the pink from the paper for her dress and the fun ribbon trim. Her hair had to be "red" as she reminds me of my daughter with her love of balloons.

Here's a few Big Ideas for this card:

* You can alter the look of your image by cutting off a section of your Nestie-cut image. In this case, I cut away the bottom scalloped edge so my image would fit the card better but you can do that even when fit is not an issue. Sometimes it just creates a different look that works for your project.
* Think in threes to add balance. Now, I am no art major and I'm not even sure I also get the concepts spot-on but I have learned over time that working in elements in an odd number, add more balance to your artwork. Since my image had 2 balloons, I punched my sentiment to add a third circle to the completed card.

Want to play along with us this week at Corrosive Challenges? Just create something that is about Birthdays and link it up at the challenge blog. It's a new month so there are new prizes waiting to be won!

See you tomorrow for another H2H Challenge~~
