Drunken Stampers challenge 138 Person: Party Planner

Good morning peeps! It's time for another fun filled challenge at the Drunken Stampers! This week's challenge is based on a Person - specifically a Party Planner.

If that throws you off your game, never fear. You can create a project that has to do with any celebration, be it a birthday, anniversary, wedding, etc. It's team Tropical Hooter's turn this week to dazzle you! Here's what I came up with:

I tried using some foil paper for the card. I really like how it looks, but it's a b*tch to photograph! LOL! Here are some different angles so you can bask in the reflectiveness! HA!

Here is the finished inside:

Yep, I used my beloved Paper Smooches stamps! It's an obsession that I do not want to be cured of! LOL! So, on to my card. I thought that a little scene depicting a happy little doggie celebrating a birthday would work splendidly for this challenge! I heat embossed him, then colored and fussy cut him out. Even added Glossy Accents to give his eyes some dimension. Here's a tip for adding a custom party hat to an image: on a piece of scrap paper stamp just the top of the head, then draw two lines to make the hat. Cut out using the contour line from the head and you will have a perfect fit for your party hat! I used some glitter glue along the bottom of the hat and added a rhinestone at the tip. Easy peasy! And what's a party without a banner, cake, and presents! To keep with the doggie theme, I used a paw print border punch along the edges of the foil paper. Super cute!

So, what are you waiting for? Go and play along with our new challenge, Party Planner, and have FUN! Don't forget to check out what my Tropical Hooter teammates dreamed up! You won't be disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!
