You should have arrived here from  Cely's blog, but if you didn't please go back to the beginning of the hop at Catch the Bug, so you don't miss out on any of the fun!
To join in the sketch challenge this week, we'd love to see your birthday celebration cards!
I hope you'll help us celebrate by joining in the fun! We'll have a new mini-challenge each day this week, and every day's challenge comes with a chance to WIN!
We've reached the mid-point of our party, but you still have plenty of time to create and enter your projects into the Mr. Linky's for all of the party days.
I know you didn't come by to read my chatter, so without further ado, here's today's mini-challenge:

We want to see to see you create a birthday project in primary colors, and add some BLING to it!

My card uses one of my all-time favorite Stella images - Stella Birthday - aged to perfection.
I used some Nesties for the frame and ovals. The party hat is cut from a Sizzlit, and blinged up with some Stickles. The dots around the frame and on Stella's hat are also Stickles. The scalloped sentiment and larger oval base are SU punches. A little bit of paper glaze gives her glasses a realistic look, and adds some depth to the balloon.

Now that you've been inspired ( I hope!), why not head over to the Bugaboo Stamps store and pick up this cutie for yourself?
While you're there, don't miss the Daily Deal that Jodie has posted, and be sure to check back every day for a new "doesn't get any better than this!" price on some super sweet Bugaboo images!
I'd love to see you enter in the challenge over at Catch the Bug, too!  The challenge blog is also where you can find out all the lastest "dish" on what challenges are happening and what other challenge sites that Bugaboo is sponsoring (more chances to win some free Bugaboo!). It's also where you can check out all the other fantastic DT projects, including the OBG (Oldie But Goodie) stuff, the ABC (Anything But a Card) items, and the Tuesday New so much more!
Thanks for stopping by today!
