Birthday Belly Laugh Challenge!

It's Wednesday!!  

And even better than the fact that the week has reached it's half way point is the fact that it is time for a new

on the Whimsie Forum at Paper Craft Planet!

Alicia is our hostess this week and in honor of one of our new Whimsie Doodles releases called Hot Mama, she has asked us to create a humorous birthday card!! She calls it a Birthday Belly Laugh challenge!!  LOL!!  It makes me want to chuckle just thinking of the name!!  So pull out your favorite Whiimsie Doodles stamps and join us in bringing a laugh to the recipient of your card!!  Feel free to use any sentiment you want to, but should you be interested in purchasing Hot Mama shown below (with the sentiment) you can visit the Whimsie Doodles store HERE!

This is one Hot Mama isn't she??  Why do I fear that this will be me in another decade?  LOL!!  I sure hope not, but I know you have seen this woman out there before!!  I colored the Hot Mama image using Copic markers.  The DP is from October Afternoon!

The front of the card says... "Don't think of yourself as old....

Then on the inside, it finishes are, but don't think about it!!"  LOL!!  Too funny isn't it?

I found an old Basic Grey circle tag that matched the purple accents I chose to include on this card and I used it to mat the cake.  I was trying to draw more attention to the cake since it is for a birthday.  I also added some orange rhinestones around the outside edge of the mat.

If you are thinking that this isn't my typical style then you are correct.  I was purposely going for a rather bold and outspoken color combo to match the whimsy of Hot Mama!!  I can see an old Grandma wearing this outfit...can you?  LOL!

I also did something I don't typically do by using black cardstock as my card base.  Totally out of the comfort zone of my usual white or cream card bases.

It was fun to create this and be rather obnoxious!!  I hope it still found the right balance and blend of colors to please the eyes!!

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by Whimsie Doodles to get a stamp to play with and create your own Birthday Belly Laugh card!!  You can upload them to PCP and use the keywords whimsiedoodles and WWC27.

Have a great Wednesday and I hope that you bucket overflows with lots belly laughs and smiles today!
