Watt's Up

Hello! My computer has gone to the shop. I've been missing it since last Saturday and hoping it comes back soon. I snagged a little bit of time on Tom's computer this evening so I am posting a card that I got done for a nephew's birthday.

This is really a conglomeration of a lot of different stamp sets. I started with the Simon Says 2014 Watt's Up? stamp set. I inked the background with Distress Oxide Inks (Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade) and then stamped the image and sentiment on top. I die cut it with MFT Stitched Circles and backed it with black card stock. The "Birthday Dude" sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder. The "birthday" came from the MFT Birthday Bear stamp set and the "Dude" came from a Simon Says 2014 All Boy stamp set. I had to mask the rest of the sentiments to just get those two words together. The designer paper is scraps from my scrap box backed with black card stock. Here's the inside.

The inside sentiments: "High Five! Happiest of birthdays" is from the MFT More Essential Sentiments stamp set. This turned out pretty good, I think.
I am entering these challenges:

That's it for me tonight. I am hoping it's not it for this week but we'll see how long it takes to get my computer back. Ugh! I hate to be reminded how dependent I am on it. Unfortunately it's the truth. Tomorrow I go volunteer at the twins' Head Start class. The highlight of my week. We have them all day Saturday too so their parents have some recreation time. Love having them around. Take care. Have a wonderful week if I don;t get back and I'll be around to visit as soon as I can.
