Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 296

wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Winter Inspiration Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Docrafts this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

I decided to make a birthday card.  It is great for all year around! I love this collage stamp called Entomologist PaperMania Urban 

happy birthday to you
For inking of this stamp, I used Radiant Neon Inks from Imagine Crafts. The colors are gorgeous and vibrant. After that, I did a layer of clear-embossing to prevent the colors from smearing. The sentiment is from a Fancy Pants Sticker. I added some silver strings and sequins to complete the design. 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

You have until Wed. 8am Eastern Time to join in :-)
I hope you check out the DT's work!  I can't wait to see what you create!
Also, this is a TWO-WEEK challenge, so you can take your time to create during the holiday season. 

Lastly, I want to wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
