ihp Birthday Bash Challenge —Day 6

Our challenge for you today is to make a special Birthday Card… Remember, everything this week has to do with birthday be sure your creation is birthday related!

Today's prize pack is: (1) Silly Monsters set, (1) self-adhesive crystal birthday bling and (1) Hero Arts Birthday Sayings set.

My card is a simple but special birthday card! It is based on Paper Craft Planet's Saturday Sketch and was made to celebrate the birthday of PCP's founder Susanna Boyd. Happy Birthday Susanna! I used Best Creations' Owl and Doodles paper along with Hero Arts' Sparkle Clear Love That, on sale NOW! Love that parrot green/fuschia polka dot ribbon! The sentiment is from OCL's The Botz Family. Of course, I can't live without my nesties! Here I used the squares and scalloped squares (also on sale!) to frame the owls, which were matted with punched circles.

Here are the hosts we had this week. Be sure to check their blogs for inspiration and their takes on the challenge for that day. You can also check the main IHP Birthday Bash page at the store. Even if you've missed 'em all so far, you still have a chance to play any or all!

Before you begin, PLEASE take a few minutes to review the challenge guidelines! You’ll want to follow these rules to maximize your points and qualify for the opportunity to WIN the prize for today’s challenge and the Grand Prize, all announced on the last day of our festivities!

To qualify for the prize of the day, all you have to do is upload your challenge card/project to Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) and/or Paper Craft Planet (PCP) with the appropriate tag so we can find it. Today’s challenge tag is IHPBB5. The daily challenge winners will be randomly selected at the end of the week.

To qualify for the Grand Prize of being IHP Guest Designer for the month of November, here’s how it will work: Every challenge card/project you enter will earn you points (see below), and one with the most accumulated for the week the Grand Prize winner. So the more challenges you enter, more points you earn — and the better your chances of winning the Grand Prize (and the bigger the value of your Guest Designer box will be)!

You will have until October 25th to post your work, and you can enter as many challenges as you like, but you CANNOT combine challenges in one project. All winners, including the Grand Prize winner, will be announced at the Birthday Bash on October 26th.
