Today, I bring you the 13th installment of the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge featuring the "I Dig You" stamp set.  We were invited to a birthday party for a young man turning 4 so I needed a cute card.  This is the result!  It is an adorable card with a wonderful wish for our friend and Birthday Boy, Luke…


Happy Dirtday Birthday Boy


Stampin' Up! I Dig You Stamp SetUnfortunately, we were not able to make it to the birthday party for, Luke, the Birthday Boy as our son woke up with a nasty cold and fever Saturday morning and by mid-morning both my husband and I were also not feeling all that well.  We were disappointed that we missed the party.  My husband was especially bummed out when he found out that lunch featured Beef Brisket (well, I was bummed as well because Beef Brisket is one of my FAVORITES!!!).

Sooo… you've probably figured out by now that I LOVE the "I Dig You" stamp set!  It is such a fun stamp set and great for creating Boy Themed birthday cards.  You can't go wrong with construction equipment and dirt along with great primary colors to create the perfect birthday wish or should I say "dirtday" wish.  The card base is Tempting Turquoise with Whisper White dry embossed using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  The pops of color include Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, and Daffodil Delight.  The dirt mover was colored using the Stampin' Write Markers applied directly to the stamp then "huffed" on to moisten the ink for stamping.
