The Design Team











Need a sketch to get you started, come and visit our sister challenge called "Seize the Sketch" and create a birthday card to link up here!

Have fun and let the celebration begin!!!

Challenge Rules (to keep things fair):
1. You must use the challenge and make a BIRTHDAY PROJECT.
2. You may link up to 3 birthday projects.
3. Please add a direct link to your blog or to an online gallery.
4. Feel free to combine other challenges or for a stamp release, it doesn't matter, as long as you add this challenge link and graphic to your post.
4. Any offensive posts or cards that do not follow the guidelines will be removed out of courtesy to fellow bloggers and myself.
5. As always, please have fun and make the challenge your own! All product is welcome!

This linky will close at 9am (PST) on Tuesday, August 27th.

  1. What is the point of a challenge if they are all anything goes? I like the idea of not limiting your sketches to birthdays, but it would be nice to have some kind of a theme over here - pick an embellishment, a color scheme, case a card, something.

    1. This is just a fun and safe place to share a birthday card and get some feedback from the team. ♥

    2. Cynthia and Colleen .....we will take your opinions and give them some consideration in the future, but right now we are just creating and having fun. If you happen to make a Birthday Card for another challenge,you can always link it up here as well! Thanks for your thoughts!

    1. I know Colleen...wait and see what happens...there will be "twists" some weeks...you know me...I love my dessert options!!! People will be able to share for the sake of sharing and some will be able to add a dessert option...if they wish...stay tuned ;)

    2. I just found this challenge before you changed it so I'm still fairly new to this site. But I was thinking the same thing as Cynthia. Could you do both where it can be anything birthday or do the optional challenge (your twist as you say it). The twist part is still birthday but give us something to try on our cards (color challenge, element,etc) I like challenges because they inspire me to think outside of my box. Just my thoughts.

  4. I actually was really excited to see a "general" birthday challenge. I have a boatload of sketches that I like to start from and I like to have the freedom of creating what strikes my fancy...but have a harder time finding a challenge to enter for certain cards. Most of my cards are birthday cards and they are made specifically with the person in mind...so I'm glad to know of this blog! For example, I made my birthday card and couldn't find a challenge to enter it. All the birthday challenges were either only digi or only featuring cards with stamps from certain companies or certain themes (like kid birthday). So this was perfect for me. :) I can see twisting things up every now and then, but an anything goes challenge is also nice to have.
