STAMP SIMPLY CELEBRATES- 100!!!

Happy Birthday cards are on the agenda today for the stamp simply challenge over at Sharon's blog- *AND* it's a party today!

I thought it would be fun to do a birthday card 3 different ways- change your inks/papers, embellies, but use the same basics- I used one sheet of pattern paper, one stamp set, and mixed it up with a few small changes. I have 3 different cards from one stamp session- (a rarity in my house)


First up- a simple masculine in color themed birthday- (layout is from the clean and simple blog FTL51) Going with masculine, I opted for buttons instead of bling, and a very simply ribbon treatment.
next up- (same layout, turned on it's side) bring on the girly! The paper is the flip side of the circles.


and lastly....a simple balloon bouquet (again similar layout). And I have 3 cards for my stash now- I challenge you to make one card 3 ways!

make sure to create your own birthday card this week and upload using keyword: ssnotime100
