Birthday Wishes at Corrosive Challenges

Happy Sunday to you all
Hope you are having a good day, whatever you are doing and whatever the weather.  It is pretty misearble where I am today.  Lots of rain and showers.  But that seems to be the norm at the moment.  Hope it clears up for next weekend.  It is my youngest daughter's 21st birthday and we are having a BBQ party for family and friends.  Still, I have got a couple of gazebos and us British are pretty hardy you know lol.

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge to start over at Corrosive Challenges.
As it is the start of a new month we have a new sponsor.  Our sponsor for the month of August is the wonderful Saturated Canary.  Krista has generously offered two free images to our winner for August plus the winner has the opportunity to be our next guest designer.  How fab is that?
Our challenge theme for this fortnight is:

They Say It's Your Birthday

How easy is that?  Just upload your birthday themed creations to the Corrosive Challenges blog.  Also our fab leader Regan is offering a mini prize as it is her birthday in August.  Just check out the challenge blog for full details and for some inspiration from the talented design team.

Here is my card that I have created using a gorgeous image from our sponsor Saturated Canary.

I decided to go with my favourite colour of purple for this little beauty.  The papers are from Papermania and the butterfly paper was some embossed cardstock that I got ages ago (can't remember where from though).
The decorative corners are from Memory Box and I used a spellbinders die for the flower.  Added some ribbon and lace across the centre and a large Marianne die cut butterfly.  Bit of sparkle and bling to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoes - Swirls and Lace
Stamp N Doodle - Use your favourite colour (purple)
Divas By Design - Flowers
I Love Promarkers - Spots and Stripes
One Crazy Stamper - Bingo (swirls, die cut, polka dots)
Paperplay - Layer it up
Delightful challenges - Birthdays
Crafty Ribbons - Spots and Dots
Simply Create Too - Anything goes
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Ribbon Girl - Bingo (ribbon, pearls, image)

Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing all your birthday creations.
Take care.
