Happy Birthday & BugaBoo ~ PIP Challenge 1750

Merry Christmas Season everyone!!  🎄 I am excited for all the Christmas celebrations as well as the prospect of a whole new year!!

This will be my last PIP Challenge for 2017 and I think it is such a fun one!!! Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor this week so if you'd like a fun prize from them go to Pammies Inky Pinkys Challenges to post your card for your chance to be this weeks winner!!  

I love this sweet image ~ Birthday Puppies ~ it is so full of celebration, I think it would be a great New Year's Card, or any celebration!! Like New Baby, Graduation, New Job etc !! Check it out because 2 other fun puppy images are included in this set!

My inspiration was my package of gel pens!!  I printed the puppy image and fussy cut it, laying it on the marker set I planned to use.  Then I liked it so much I decided to mimic the look on the card!!

I did add a little shading to the puppy to give it some dimension, but otherwise I left it white. 
After cutting each strip of colored paper I used a border stamp from Stampin' Up! "Mosaic Madness" to accent the center of each strip for a monochromatic look.

I will let you in on a little secret . . . . I had every intention of making this a Happy New Year card!!  When my creative madness was satiated I looked up saw and it said birthday!!!!  {I must need a birthday card soon & didn't know it!!} Maybe I was thinking of Jesus!! We're celebrating his birth big time in my house right now!!

The little banner was made with a tiny alphabet set and some embroidery floss. I left it black and white / any amount of color would have eliminated the "PoP" I was looking for.  I think Nuvo Crystal Drops on each corner where the glue is would be a cute look too & I also plan to edge each banner piece with a little iridescent glitter!

Have fun ~ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!  I will be looking for your entry in the PIP Challenges!
