Bugaboo Birthday Bash - Day #1 - Birthday Bingo, Sentimental Sunday #190, Make it Monday#175, Alphabet Challenge - Y is for Young People

Hello friends and followers - Happy Monday! does it get to be Monday so fast?  Are the weekend days shorter than the other days of the week?  I'm starting to think so :o)

Last night  I made 3 fun cards for the Bugaboo 4th Birthday Celebration as I have lots of the digital images that I haven't used, I need more birthday cards for my stash AND they are offering great prizes. Lots of incentive to pull out my markers and get to coloring :o). I'll show you the other two cards in separate posts.

Day 1 of the Bugaboo 4th Birthday Celebration is a Bingo Challenge - take a look:
And here's what I made using the diagonal of Bugaboo Image, FREE and Ribbon (just a wee bit):
Details: All paper supplies from Stampin' Up
Digital image from Bugaboo "flowerlb" colored with copic markers

All said and done, I'm happy with this card, but had a couple "challenges" of my own with completing it :o).  I didn't intend to have such a bright blue background but half way through my shading my very lightest BG0000 copic ran out of juice  - oops.  The next closest color I had was B00, so I grabbed it.  It looks like the sky background, I guess.  I also didn't intend to have spots but when I pulled the cap off my W7 marker to fill in some more shading on this cut bug's body the ink just shot out :o(  Oh well...I kind of like the spots now, gives it some character. I have a young niece with a birthday coming up soon - this will be perfect for her cute self.

In addition to the Bugaboo Birthday Celebration Day #1, I am entering my card in the following challenges:
  Sentimental Sundays (my first time there) - Challenge #190 "More than 3 Layers" (plus a sentiment).
Make It Monday #175 with Bugaboo Stamps
Alphabet Challenge (my first time there) - "Y for Young card" for a little one.

Well that's it for this post. Thanks for letting me share with you today. Stay tuned for the other two cards. Til next time..hugs and happy crafting! D
