Blogger’s Challenge - Birthday

Today for the Blogger’s Challenge we had the theme of “Birthday”. Well that was really an easy one! So I jumped right in!

I really enjoyed the sketch from Monday that I decided to use it another time today!

Here is my card for today:

birthday challenge

Can you see the center of the flower? This is the coolest thing – You are going to crack up! Take a guess what it could be…. Well I won’t torture you any longer! It is:

 Ear buds

See, a very kind and special friend thought of me too when she bought those. She was so excited and said: “Can’t you just picture them in the center of flowers?” And sure enough, I was able to! I even had another idea for them, as to the “how to add” them to the project.

You start with – a jumbo brad:

Then you add the little ear phone cover:

… just like you would with ear phones! And then you get this:

Isn’t that just way cool? Thanks my friend for sharing with me! Now I just have to find some more before I can share the source :-)

Happy Friday!
