Happy Birthday - Paper Smooches

I made another card this week. Woot!

Paper Smooches "Talk Bubbles" Stamp.

I truly enjoy combining challenges. Today I am combining a product challenge with a sketch and color, also with a design and then a theme challenge. First up, my brand new Paper Smooches stamp. I just bought my first one and have been looking forward to using it. So I am a happy butterfly to be playing along with their SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge this week:

my stamp:

Isn't that such a cool stamp?

Sketch and color interpretation came from:
I used the aqua and gold colors, included a doily inspired from the ruffling on the purse, and the placement of the four hexagons was inspired by the cups.

Sketch Variations
- Orientation: The speech bubble pointed downward, so I flipped the sketch
- Circle element: Used a doily
- Thin rows of strips: Maintained the horizontal visual with twine

The birthday theme was for the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge:

The hexagons were for the Moxie Fab World Happy for Hexagons Challenge:

That was fun. I am off to do some couponing. Need to get my shopping lists and coupons together. Looking to saving me some money if I'm going to get that Silhouette!!

Hugs to you and if you are creating today, then Happy Scrappin'!!!!

You have one of the most creative takes on this week's challenge! I love what you have done...the placement of the hexagons in place of the blue cups was so is obvious you really thought out your card and it was well worth it.
