   If you’ve been visiting here for a bit, you’ve probably noticed the adorable little badge on the left sidebar about Pholkart Studios design team. Well, we’re starting our first challenge!

Pholkart Studios Challenge Blog

This month’s challenge is “Anything Goes!”. Easy, right?!?!?! There are a couple rules though. Just head over to the PS Challenge Blog and click on the “how to play” tab at the top. 🙂 Anyone can join (even kidlets!)! A winner will be posted using a random drawing! They’ll win 2 free digis from the Pholkart Studio Etsy store!

   Now, onto my card. My nephew Liam just recently had a birthday. Yes, I know… As always, I’m behind. Story of my life. But at least I’m doing something, right?

I chose this fun digital stamp called “Birthday Bash”. Isn’t it adorable???
It looked like a snapshot to me, so I colored in some harsher shadows in the background. 🙂

Now, I’ve recently been watching a lot of videos on Nicol Magourick‘s YouTube channel.
One of the things she does a LOT is using a Sakura black glaze pen to enhance
the eyes of her images. So, I decided to give this a shot. 🙂 I added it to
the eyes of both critters and to the bottom layer of the cake.

Then, I added some of the Sakura clear glitter pen to the cake details and
some of the Sakura Clear Glaze pen to the nose and some other pieces of the cake.
After that, I added some glossy accents to both balloons.

Now, on the inside, I decided to use a stamp set I just got for birthday cards! This is “Cake and Candles” from Avery Elle. Lots of fun sentiments in this one!

   The paper I used is the 6×6 pad of “Hello Cupcake” from Imaginisce. The colors are perfect for boy birthday cards! 🙂 I also added a cute little scalloped border from Lawn Fawn. I think it turned out so adorable! I added some Doodletwine to help tie in that pretty orangy-yellow color. 🙂

Have a great day!!!
