Your Next Stamp Challenge #22~Birthday!

Make sure you check out my blog candy HERE

Hello!  It's time for another Your Next Stamp Challenge!  Since Your Next Stamp is about to celebrate it's First Birthday~WooHoo~ Karen (our fearless leader) has chosen Birthday for our theme! 

You may be looking at my project wondering what is so birthday about this adorable Bubbly Fun Fhiona image, but I just thought she was perfect to pair with a gift card to either Bath & Body Works, or a Spa!  I don't know about you, but after having spent the summer at home with my 3 kiddos, I could use a spa gift card myself :) Only 3 more weeks to go!

I used this super fun template from Perfect Presentation called My Little Bag.  What a fabulous way to present a gift card, right!?!  Inside I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Your Next Stamp set Elegant Greetings, and slipped my gift card inside the little sleeve.  I can't wait to give this to somebody! 

We hope you'll play along with our Birthday theme for a chance to win some prizes:

1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!

2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Karen, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [NB You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].

Also, tomorrow is the Your Next Stamp First Birthday Blog Hop, and your DO NOT want to miss it!!!  We have some special guests joining us, and LOTS of fabulous prizes to be won!  You also have a chance at winning just by grabbing our Blog Hop Blinkie HERE and putting it on your blog.  Check out Karen's Blog for all the details:)

This is the perfect way to present a spa gift card! Love the way you colored Fhiona and those pearl bubbles are so lovely! You should leave this on the counter where your hubby will see it and put a note with it that says "insert your wifes well deserved SPA card here" LOL Love it!

Soooo adorable! Love the little 'bag' as a (gift) card holder! Looks wonderful! And I love the papers you chose for this... great colors and patterns!
But the total star of this 'card' is the super duper cute stamp image that you've colored to perfection ... and then -as cherry on top- the added little pearls as little bubbles .. what a great idea! Fabulous project!!!

I saw this and thought "Why didn't she use her Cricut to cut this template" and then I remembered I don't have it ready in svg yet! LOL I need to work on that! Your project rocks!
