Birthday Blessings to You!!!

Hello!!! It is the time of the month when the ODBD sneak peeks begin for the big release day on August 1st!!! I am using Happy Birthday!!! I am so excited about this set. It has two fabulous Happy Birthday sentiments as well as wonderful scriptures. I love the main image. It is fun to color and is perfect to go with many of your ODBD sets. I used copics to color.

Have you checked out the DARE TO GET DIRTY CHALLENGE ‘09 on Splitcoast? If you’re a SCS Fan Club member you can find out challenge information here. If you’re not a SCS fan club member, what are you waiting for? Are you all having fun participating in SCS Dirty Dare Challenges? Like many of you I need to combine a few.
For this card I combined these challenges.
I just want to say that I used a sewing machine and actually sew stitches on my card. I am amazed. I also sew the clear acetate to the card, too. I have done it only a few times, but I definitely need to try it some more. I think I need to have the space between the stitches longer.
