Paper Sweeties Is Turning Three!

Happy Saturday! August is a very special month. It's Paper Sweeties' Third Birthday! Debbie has graciously asked me to join in for this month's Paper Sweeties challenge and birthday celebration!
This month's challenge inspiration board is just the cutest! Here's a peek:

I have two cards to share with you today; I couldn't stop at just one!

First up is a very cute birthday card. The cute little cupcake is from one of my all-time favorite Paper Sweeties stamp sets, Sending Sweet Thoughts. The sentiment is from the Happy set. The die cut word is from the Happy Sweet Cuts die set. I've also added some seam binding in Mint and  Sugar Sprinkles for a sweet shabby chic look.

My second  is a birthday card made with them same papers and the Happy stamp set and Sweet Cuts die set. I've stamped and die cut some cute roses and leaves using the Party Time stamps and coordinating Sweet Cuts die sets. I stamped the flowers onto the patterned papers used in the rest of the card for a soft look.  This card is a bit fancier than the first with the addition of a little lace trim along the left side and lots of pearls!.

To Join in on the fun, all you have to do is CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board using any of your favorite crafty supplies — receive an EXTRA VOTE if you use something from Paper Sweeties such as a stamp, die or embellishment!  If you don’t have any stamps from Paper Sweeties yet, we have some complimentary digital images for you to try out!  Use this month’s board as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme — anything goes!
Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish — the more times you play, the more chances you have to win! The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month.

I hope you'll join us for this month's challenge and keep checking back at Paper Sweeties during the month of August for more birthday fun. See you there!
