Fun And Games Happy Birthday

Hello, my crafty and creative friends!  Today I want to share a card that I made for a couple of challenges.  I always enjoy using my October Afternoon supplies; especially along with other favorites.  This card was created with October Afternoon patterned papers, chipboard and tidbits; as well as some fun Papertrey Ink products.  I did a little bit of machine stitching, added a seam binding bow, a glittered button, a half doily, a tag, and that's about it.
I'm going to share this card in the following challenges:
Nichole Heady/Papertrey Ink Blog - Make It Monday #202 - Anchoring With Borders and Banners - The Papertrey Ink products I incorporated into this project are some of their lovely die-cuts including the Hearts Border Die and their Double-Ended Banners Die Set.  I just LOVE all their sweet products!
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog - Challenge #299 - Cute Critters - I used a chipboard elephant for my "cute critter".
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Add A Little Texture" - How boring would our cards be without all the great elements that give them texture?  FABULOUS challenge!
I'm truly grateful to have you stop by and take a peek at my little Fun and Games card.  I appreciate your visit, and look forward to stopping by your blogs to see what you've been creating this week.
