Digital Tuesday Challenge #14 'Sweet Birthdays'

This week's Digital Tuesday Challenge is to use anything 'sweet' with a birthday theme on your card or project. Well, I think Strawberries are pretty sweet, so I used this 'sweet' image from Digital Stamp Oasis called 'Sammy Squirrel Eats Strawberries'. The inside of the card says 'Happy Birthday' so that it qualifies for the challenge. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a 5 1/2 by 11 piece of 'Garden Green' card stock. I then layered Real Red and White over, and over again. One of the white panels was embossed with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder 'Swiss Dots', and the designer paper panel is Stampin Up!. The strawberry image I pulled off another card that someone sent me in the mail (yes, I do that. I often break apart other hand made cards that I receive and remake new cards with them. Recycle, reuse!) so I have no idea what image it is, but I know its Stampin Up!. The Designer Paper Panel, the main image panel, the strawberry, and the green part of the strawberry are all mounted up on dimensionals. The image is colored with Copic Markers and I used a white gel pen to highlight the strawberries. The tag is a Cuttlebug Die.

    By you "reusing" other people's cards, is that something like "regifting??" LOL!! Oh wait, you said that was "recycling" ... I've never used homemade cards friends have sent me but I have used pieces from storebought cards that friends have sent or all those cards we get from places like March of Dimes, etc. that we send money to.
