A Birthday Hangover and a Color Challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Both parties went GREAT! Lauren (4) loved having her friends over for a princess/water party. Cara and her friend set up a temporary tattoo booth for the girls and a few of them left looking like lead singers in heavy metal bands.
Cara (13) then had her movie night/slumber party. The girls had a lot of fun (not a lot of sleep, but they were really good!) Mom is tired!!

Today, I am hosting the color challenge on StampTV. You can find all the details on the challenge HERE. You have all week to play along and be entered to win a stamp set of your choice from Gina K Designs!!

Here is my card:

I used the stamps from the new StampTV kit-Eclectic Summer on this card. I paired the image with some Lime Rickey (Basic Grey) paper. The card base is created using the Bright Summer Grunge Digital Paper (by Emily Giovanni). These papers go so well together.

I stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers. After popping out the flowers, I cut the circles using Spellbinders dies.

<--Here is the card as it is opening. You can see the design better this way. The top flap tucks behind the main image circle to keep the card shut.
Inside, I added a birthday sentiment from the kit and some designer paper.
Hope you will play along in the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty card, Cammie. I intend to order my kit today. Glad you had a wonderful time with your girls. Enjoy that while you can. My 22 year old graduated from college this past Saturday and now he's moving to Boston (too far away IMO, but that's where the job is). Have a wonderful week! Hugs to you.

Glad you survived the Birthday parties. I raised boys, so it was a lot different style parties at my house. The card is fantastic, I love the way it folds. I may have time this week to participate. I need some birthday cards, so that would work.
