Birthday Text Message

Hello, everyone! The merry month of May is almost over and I hope you all had a wonderful month, enjoying Mother's Day and celebrating the Memorial Day holiday. And the final challenge for the month of May is happening at The Outlawz. This week's challenge is, as always, "Anything Goes", but with NO optional twist this time.

The card I created for this week's Design Team display was not difficult at all.  I used a Stitchy Bear image and colored it with Copic markers. I composed my sentiment, positioned and printed it next to my image. Next, using a die from Susan Wilson's  Decorative Frames B. I cut my image panel. Before removing it from the die, I sponged around the edges with Memento Desert Sand ink. To make the theme of my project complete, I added a cell phone digital stamp image using dimensionals.
I prepared my base card in white card stock and layered it with GKD Blue Denim. I added a another layer of patterned paper. At this point, I popped on my focal image to my base card with dimensionals and my card was complete.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to join in this week's challenge at The Outlawz. We'd love to see your creations!
