Happy Dirtday to Riley!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share another quick and easy birthday card I made using the adorable "I Dig You" set by Stampin Up.  This card is for Riley, the youngest member of my bible study group "family" (he's turning 1!).  I colored directly onto the stamp with markers in order to match this super fun Basic Grey "Life of the Party" designer paper....I love how they seem to be made for each other!!

I have used a couple of challenges in the making of this card.  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Stephanie aka Booga3....I have several cards on my list to case from her amazing gallery, but my card today is cased from this adorable card.  I loved the simple layout of it!

Also, the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge is to show "Action" on your card;
Crafty Pad: 'For The Boys';
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes with option 'Men or Boys';
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Stampin Up 'I Dig You';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Night of Navy and Whisper White;
Ink: Ranger Antique Linen (sponging), Stampin Up Early Espresso (brown), Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, and Garden Green;
Accessories: Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, Stampin Up Word Window Punch (sentiment), red brads, paper piercer and template (plus espresso marker for faux stitching);
Size: A2.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!   Have a very blessed week!!
