Happy 4th Birthday...

...Bugaboo Stamps!!!

To celebrate there has been a week of challenges over at the Catch the bug challenge blog.

The has been a super Blog hop and a different challenge each day.

Saturday 18 January - Bingo
I decided to go with Bugaboo image/cupcake/scallop...
 ...quite a CAS design for me. The Bugaboo image just happened to be a cupcake...
...and the card blank has scalloped lace printed down the side.

Sunday 19 January - Birthday celebration sketch
This was my take on the sketch that was provided for this challenge...
 ...I kept to a colour scheme of black/white/silver and fairly clean lines as I wanted this for a male birthday card...
...I used an off-cut of the wrapping paper I used on the gift to create one of the layers. The rest of the layers are all black or white CS and I coloured the cupcake image with black & silver pens. A strip of black washi tape with polka dots on and this one was finished.

Monday 20 January - Colour challenge
The photo showing the colours over at the challenge site had me stumped for a while as these are not colours that I would normally use. However, this is what I came up with...
...another CAS card and another cupcake...
...the black polka dot washi came in handy again too.

Tuesday 21 January - New release and/or Bling it up
Sticking with the cupcake image...
 ...I added some holographic miri card...
...and some stickles to give this card a bit of "bling". 

Wednesday 22 January - "Humour me" (something funny)
I do love the "JJ" images - they are so me!. So it had to be a JJ image for this challenge...
...isn't she fab...
...I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens.

Thursday 23 January - Just kidding around (something for the kids)
An angel teddy seemed the perfect thing for this challenge...
...coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and given a bit of sparkle with some crystal stickles...
...teddy has been rough cut and attached to a kraft card blank using 3D foam pads.

Friday 24 January - Freebie/Theme (the theme is to include something with increments of 4)
Last of the challenges and we are back to cupcakes but this time a stack of them...
 ...my increments of 4 are the four bands of washi tape and the four pieces of card candi...
...I went with a touch of red/white/blue on this one.

There we have it, my seven entries for the Bugaboo birthday challenge..............................................
