C4C58 Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Saturday!!!

What can I say...this past week has flown by again....!!! I had the best intensions to create some cards for some fun challenges and somehow I couldn't get going :) !!! But I'm happy to bring you this weeks Crazy 4 Challenge ~ C4C58!!!

I chose a very easy theme for you this week....October is my birthday month and all I want you to do is create a *Birthday* card or project!!!

Wanna know what your reward is for playing along???? Verve Stamps has again graciously donated a $25 Gift Certificate for one lucky winner...so get going and show us your gorgeous ideas!!! Make sure to check the C4C Blog for all the details on how to play along!!!

Here is my idea for the *birthday theme*....



Julee was also super generous during this sponsership and allowed us to pick a Verve Stamp Set of our choice. I chose the beautiful Big Wish Set. You can't have enough birthday sets...right???

Anyway, I decided to use one of Julee's fabulous Sketches she designed for the Release Party this past week.

Isn't it an awesome Sketch??? I really wanted to keep the focus on the beautiful birthday cake and went with some easy colors ~ Real Red and So Saffron. The DP is from the SU Real Red Collection. All I basically did was added the Red Satin Ribbon with a matching Button above the sentiment and the Silver Pearls around the cake....voila!!!

Now it's time to check out the Crazy Team for their ideas ~ Angela, Barbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, JoycelynLyndaMaria, Silke K. and Tammy.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!  Have a fantastic weekend!!! As always....I'll be back with my Curtain Call card  for tomorrow!!! Hugs  ~S~
