It's SSS at Hiding in My Craft Room

Good morning bloggie buddies, it's Super Scrap Saturday at Hiding in My Craft Room.  Yup, that's our challenge for you this week.  I love this challenge, although to be honest with you, I don't seem to make a dent in my scraps drawer, in fact sometimes, I think I add more to it :-)  I really need to  ruthlessly throw out the itty bitty pieces of scraps but "I may just need that lil piece" :-)

 Our wonderful sponsor this week is Laurie from Hiding in My Craft Room and she has two prizes, so that means there will be two winners!
The prizes are a Space Party Cricut Cartridge or a  Robot Party Cricut Cartridge.  Winner's choice!

Now onto my card for this challenge.  Since it is for my Uncle, and it is going overseas, I tried to make it a manly card without too many layers.

Supplies used to make this card:

Card base ~ Recollections 6.5" x 5" - white
Silver card stock ~ No info. - scraps drawer
Red card stock ~ No info. - scraps drawer
Black card stock ~ No info.- scraps drawer
Happy Birthday ~ Silhouette - design # 42909
Embossing Folder ~ Cloudy Sky - Darice
Spitfire Die ~ Frantic Stamper
Stars ~ Studio G. punch
Stamped Sentiment ~ Good Times - Cardz TV
Blue chalk used for the blue sky.

I had fun making this card. Looking back at it, I should have chalked in the sky a little more and made it a little bit more blue, but it's already on it's way overseas, so next time :-)

You have till 2:00 am CST on Saturday, 15 August 2015, to link your project to our challenge #211 at Hiding in My Craft Room.  I can't wait to see the wonderful creations you will come up with to play along with us.

Till next time,
Happy Crafting
