Be Happy Superhero Birthday Card...

Hello there, wonderful Crafters!  Oh, I am so excited to share with you this project I made for my friend's son that just celebrated his 6th birthday recently.  He is into Batman a lot!  This is the second year he requested Batman stuff for gifts.  Last year, I made a Batman card out of Cricut die-cuts so, had to think of something different.  So, here's what I came up with.  I saw these Superhero Bundle from Melonheadz Illustrating a while back and I fell in love.  Been collecting her images but didn't get a chance to make a project out of them until today.  Aren't they the cutest?  They're fun to color too...Out of 10 Superhero images, I had to select 4 to fit into the A7 Kraft card base and of course, I had to highlight Batman.  I did this by popping him up among the rest.  I colored them using my ProMarker/Prismacolor markers, added some ribbon by weaving it to the border I punched from Fiskars, die-cut a shape using my Nesties, used some black brads and stitched all over.  I selected 3 DP's that are similarly designed yet with different colors, aged a panel with Pumice Stone Distress ink, stamped the sentiments and colored balloon image, all from Printworks.  I think it came out pretty cool!  So, what do you think, guys?  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.   One Stitch at a Time featuring "Anything Goes"
2.   Allsorts featuring "Going Around in Circles" 
3.   Avadares featuring "Anything for August" 
4.   Crafty Ann's featuring "Circles" 
5.   Simply Create Too featuring "Anything Goes" 
6.   Sassy Cheryl's featuring "Favorite Color Combo" (Red, Blue, Grey)
7.   Joanna Sheen featuring "Try Something New"  (Digi Images tried for the first time)
8.   Critter Sketch featuring "Digi Week" 
9.   House of Gilli featuring "Add a Sentiment"
10. Whoopsi Daisy featuring "Anything Goes" 
11. Paper Pretties featuring "Anything Goes" 
12. Truly Madly Crafty featuring "Summer Fun" 
13. Stamp and Create featuring "Stitch It Up"
14. Corrosive Challenge featuring "It's your Birthday" 





Yay, I am getting caught up with making cards again!  Last 2 weeks, there were lots of things that needed our attention that it's hard to find a time to make anything.  We still have a bit of that this week but I'm determined to get some projects done especially that another little girl, a daughter of my friend, is going to celebrate her birthday this weekend.  Got to make something for her and I'll show y'all when I get done.  So, with every situation in life, I simply put my trust in Jesus for He always see us through!  One time, I read a message from a fortune cookie (Nope, I am not in anyway a believer in fortune stuff) but I like what is said:  "Faith is seeing the entire staircase when all you can see is a step."  That is exactly how I choose to face each day.  I serve an awesome God!
