♥ Simon Says...Happy Birthday! ♥

We are celebrating this week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week the challenge is....

                                             HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 
                 We are celebrating our 4th Birthday this week :-)


So, we want to see those birthday cards!! And to celebrate this fabulous Birthday, the amazing Heidi is giving away not 1 Prize, not 2 Prizes but 3 Prizes!! (see below for pics!) Woo-Hoo!

And the Simon Says DT are showcasing Exclusives by Simon Says Stamp!! So many amazing stamp sets, dies and embellies to choose from!! But I decided to use the Square Sayings Stamp Set, which is sold separately or you can buy it bundled with the coordinating dies (1 of the prizes;) and I also used the Party Banner Die. Love this fun stamp set and Banner die!


I  stamped the star background, with some light pink ink, onto some cream colored cardstock and then stamped the Happy Birthday over it in black. I then added it behind a chipboard heart circle frame, which I distressed a little with white paint, brown ink and chunky glitter. I then added a heart gem and Liquid Pearl to it. I did the same to the Party Banner as well. The papers I used are from the Nostalgia 6x6 Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. The pink heart at the top is also from the Square Sayings Stamp set too. I just stamped it and then cut it out.


Here are the Amazing Prizes from the Super Amazing and generous Heidi!!

Prize #1 ~ A $100 Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!       


Prize #2 ~ The Simon Says Stamp Friendship Circles Stamp and Die Set!
Prize #3 ~ The Simon Says Stamp Fit to Be Square Stamp and Die Set! 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the fabulous Simon Says DT blogs too! You are in for a real treat!! ;)

Have a wonderful day!!

hugs...
