Birthday Sundaes Challenge # 7

Hello Crafters,
Can you believe we are already on challenge # 6 over the on Birthday Sundaes Blog!? This week the challenge is 'Anything Goes' and we are sponsored by Patti's Creations. Below is the card that I made with one of her digital stamps. Which can be purchased here . I had so much fun making this card...I actually went a little crazy and made a few which I will show you :) The image was just so great and by justing changing up the colours I could make the same design look like a totally different card. I'll explain more and you can see below.

I also made my own embellishment for this card. I saw similar ones in Michael's a while back and was shocked at the price. Anyways after careful inspection I realized I had all the materials to make my own and they really didn't look that hard. Seriously, once I tried I realized I can make one in under 5 minutes. They are great and I am sure you will be seeing many more of them on my future projects.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

This one was actually the first one I made. It feels a bit little old ladyish to me (shhh I think I am going to send it to my Nanny, she'll love it! lol).

I loved that one but felt it was really not my style. I tried some different colours and made the next one a bit more funky.

Oh wait there is more...on my third go I decided to go really funky with the colours and BAM...Love it!
I would also like to enter this last card into the Bows n Berries  - bold and bright challenge #4
