Hi, There
I am "celebrating" with a challenge entry over at 613 Avenue Create - it is their 3rd year!!  And how they have grown!!  HB to all of you!  The card design is from a sketch over at Mojo Monday and I have used the ideas from the TicTacToe Challenge blog!!  Lots of fun going on at these challenges! Thanks for stopping by - till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Challenges for this card:
613 Avenue Create Challenge #158 - 3rd Block Birthday Party
TicTacToe Challenge #1 - I used the column - Gold/Celebrate/Background Stamping

Card Recipe
Image is from a Stamp and Die set/ Dare to be Artsy colored with Copic Markers.  Love these Owls - so cute!!
The background was stamped with cupcakes and "iced" with different color stickles.  I also stamped and embossed some hearts with gold embossing powder in the background.  Added a doily and to the left a strip of magic card from Heidi Swapp and this was sprayed with Dylusions Inks.  A number 3 was stamped on the bottom cupcake and mounted with two foam dots.  Distressed with ink the sentiments and the base card.  Some glossy accents on his eyes.
