Welcome to the new term of challenges at Pattie's Creations and be sure to welcome our two new design team members too - Bettina and Jackie.
This week's challenge is all about birthdays - everyone has them and most everyone needs to have a stash of cards ready to send out at the last minute (at least if you're like me).
I chose the Mushroom Birdhouse at Pattie's Etsy store to create a special birthday card for a friend of mine who loves Pattie's images. The image is colored with Copic markers and the embossed panel is from Cuttlebug. I created this glittery panel by inking up the embossing folder with VersaMark, running it through my machine, and then covering it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Sangria Star embossing powder. This embossing powder has the glitter mixed right in, so no extra steps are needed to create lots of bling. I also embossed my brads the same way (dip them in VersaMark, then the embossing powder, and heat to set. Be sure to hold them with a long clip so you don't burn your fingers.)
You have two weeks to upload your birthday creations to Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team's creations too.
