Thank You for stopping by and joining me for this week's Birthday Sundaes Challenge #18! This week we have an ANYTHING GOES challenge plus a Birthday Sentiment. We are also welcoming a new sponsor to Birthday Sundaes - Circle B Enterprises Scrapbooking. Veronica, owner of Circle B Enterprises Scrapbooking has generously donated a $20 Gift Card to her store. To learn more about Veronica, Circle B Enterprises Scrapbooking and this week's prize, pleaes visit the Birthday Sundaes Blog.

I'm my worst critic and am not completely happy with this week's ANYTHING GOES card. I feel like I'm always doing the same thing - I guess that must be my style, right?

I based the card on this week's Mojo Monday 199 Sketch. Replacing the second circle for a cluster of Roses.

The roses were hand-dyed to match this week's Color Throwdown #150. The smaller ones with 'Blue Jazz' Glimmer Mist and the larger one with a combo of water and paint. They were both sprayed with some 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist. The leaves are from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge cut at 1".

I used 'Spring Moss' Crinkled Ribbon from My Craft Spot - I just can't get enough of this ribbon. Added a 'Butrfly2' from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge cut at 3/4".

The sentiment is from the Stampin Up! Well Scripted - Digital - Set. I used PSE8 to recolor the stamp to a "Rose Red". The scalloped circle is from the Cricut Alphalicious Cartridge.

Now, it's YOUR TURN! Create an ANYTHING GOES Birthday Card - don't forget the Birthday Sentiment - and link it up by Saturday, July 23rd 11:59PM EST for your chance to win this week's prize and to be featured as a SUPER SUNDAE!
