"Happy Birthday" card by Christina Hoffman
Supplies - Patterned paper: Bella Blvd.; Alphabet: Cosmo Cricket (Happy) and The Paper Studio
(Birthday); Embroidery Thread: DMC; Jewels: KaiserCraft.

The only changes I made to this sketch was I used jewels on the stars instead of stitching and I only stitched on one of the strips.

"Happy Birthday" card by Tammy Volland
Supplies - Digital Kit by: Sherri Tierney / Star Struck; Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS3

I didn't vary too much from the actual sketch but did make a few minor changes. I added drop shadows to all pieces. For the title I used the font Chinacat with a drop shadow and beveled it in a inner bevel of 5 px.

Variation #1 - For the stitching I use ribbon at the top and added a second row to give some color dimention and also in the second row. For the bottom I linked the two layers together by sewing them together part way.

Variation #2 - I added staples to the middle section.

Variation #3 - I added a embellishment at the bottom and stapled it there.

Variation #4 - I added a swirl paper clip at the top just to give some balance.

 "Celebrate" card by Allison Davis
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: We R Memory Keepers; Alphabet: My Little Shoebox; Pearls: unknown

I followed the sketch almost exactly with the exception of the size of the stars. Using a little bit larger size didn't alter any other part of the card other than there is a little less space at the top and bottom of the card.

Somehow stitching pops up on almost all my LOs. I don't have a machine, so I need to poke all the holes myself. This great tool would make the proces go a lot faster!

Arianne, you can email me at allison@scrapbookgeneration.com with your shipping information so we can get that prize to you!
