Creative With Stamps April Challenge

It's time for another monthly challenge at Creative With Stamps (CWS). Click on over to the site for DT inspiration and to link your own card for a chance to win a prize.

April's challenge is...BIRTHDAY! It's also CWS's 3rd blog-aversary. WOW!

My card for the challenge:

I really wanted to use this truck for my card this month but even though it's super cute, I had a hard time coming up with a card design. So to get out of my creative funk, I went through my 6x6 pads and found this patterned paper. The bottom pattern of this card is the backside of the patterned paper. Easy!

I added a strip of coordinating washi tape so the border wouldn't be so harsh. Once I had my color combination, I colored in the truck using watercolor markers.

This stamp set is from Stampin' Up. Here are some other shots of the card:

Since I had the stamp set out, I created a second card with a different color combination. I may have overthought this card a little more but I still like it:

I added some Beach Ball Color Silk from Fun Stampers Journey for some fun splatter, a bit of yellow thread, doily and a custom made patterned paper (cupcakes) to add some interest behind the truck. I also added some white dots on the truck using a white pen.

Now it's your turn, click on over to Creative With Stamps to add your card to the linkage.
