Pink by Design Team Call - Project #3

Hi Crafty Friends,

Happy “Hump” Day! I'm so happy that it is finally Wednesday!! Today was my last day at work until next Monday. I’m headed off for Disney World in the morning…YAAAYYY!!

So definitely check back next week for some Disney inspired projects ;0)  As many of you already know, I have submitted a few projects for the DT Call over at Pink by Design Stamps. Tonight I will be sharing with you my 3rd and last project for the call. I wanted to use my Pink by Design “Spanish Greetings” Stamps Set.  I have so many relatives who only understand & read in Spanish that this set was a must have for me. There is such a fantastic assortment of sentiments with this set. I am really happy that I purchased it. I decided to make a birthday card because as I’ve learned from experience, you can never have too many birthday cards on hand. That is really were my inspiration for this card got started. I also knew I wanted to go with a shaped card and I remembered that there was a particular cut on the Birthday Bash Cartridge I just had to use. So here are all the details of my latest creation.

Cartridges Used
Elegant Edges: (Card base-shadow cuts @ 5.00” welded with my Gypsy and Mats @ 4.90”, 4.25” & 4.0”)
Birthday Bash: (PiƱata @ 3.25”)

Other items used

Well, I hope you have enjoyed all my projects for the call. Although I will be out of town for a few days, I will be participating in a Valentine’s Day Blog Hop this coming Saturday, January 28th. So check back to see what I came up with and a chance to win some blog candy :0)

Hi Everyone,

Hope your week is off to a great start!
