It's My Birthday and I'm Feeling Doodlelicious!

It’s Doodlelicious Wednesday (and MY BIRTHDAY, so be sure to go to the end of this post to take part in a challenge to help me celebrate!), which means it is time for me to share another card featuring an adorable Whimsie Doodle digistamp! Today I chose to feature Flip Flop Bear, one of my personal favorites. I colored him with Copics and added Crystal Effects to his goggles, snorkel and tube! I used a Stampin’ Up! stamp to add some dimension to the beach sand. And one thing that may be hard to see in the picture is that all of the yellow cardstock is glittered (love that stuff—hoard that stuff!)!!

Ingredients: Stamps: Whimsie Doodles {Flip Flop Bear, Beach Sentiments}, Stampin' UP! {Snappy Birthday}; Cardstock: Stampin’ Up! {Whisper White}; DP: We R Memory Makers {The White Out Collection}, Diecut With A View {Glittered Yellow}. Accessories: CM Oval Cutters, Dimensionals, Crystal Effects, Green mini brads, Green and white polka dot grosgrain.

*And now for a BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE!*
Upload and link a birthday card (make it new for this challenge, only!) in the comments section of this post, by midnight tomorrow (July 9th). I'll look at all of the entries and choose my favorite to receive a special prize (it will be something I love, so I know you will, too)!! What do you know, it's MY birthday, and you guys get the presents!!
