Simon Says ....Happy Birthday!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Welcome!  This week is pretty special to us at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, because we're marking our 4th Birthday!  The Design Team and our Guest Designer Laura are using Simon Says Stamp Exclusives this week.  If you have some, we'd love to see how you use them, but it's not a requirement to enter. Just make sure you make something with a birthday theme.  Since this is such a special occasion for us, we'll be offering THREE PRIZES this week - read on to see the details.

Here's my card for you this week, using lots of Simon Says Stamp exclusives:

SSS April 3, Happy Birthday

I used Woodgrain cardstock as my background, and added some flowers from the Like Your Style stamp set (February Card Kit) stamped on some subtle patterned papers.  My sentiment is the Oh Happy Day craft die.  

Here is a closer shot to show you how the woodgrain cardstock looks:

AND she's offering  packs of Simon's exclusive Stamp and Die Sets to two more random winners!!  Prize #2 is FRIENDSHIP CIRCLES.


And here's Prize #3, FIT TO BE SQUARE:


What are you waiting for?  Please don't forget that we've put a limit on the number of entries you can add to the gallery each week - no more than FIVE, please!
