Red Hat Hot Mama Birthday Card - Whimsie Wednesday Challenge


It is time for another challenge over at the Whimsie Doodles' PCP group! The hostess for this week's challenge, Birthday Belly Laugh, is moi! For my 'make you giggle' birthday card, I chosen the new Hot Mama digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles.

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn't go and doesn't suit me.
As soon as I saw she was sporting a hat, I knew she must become a member of the Red Hat Society!! While I am not eligible for membership yet, I hope to be as hip and fun as the Red Hatters I have seen out and about. I want to be fabulous when I am over fifty too!  :)


The sentiment that comes with this image ("Don't think of yourself as old... You are, but don't think about it.") is where the answer to my challenge comes in. I don't know about you, but it definitely made me laugh.  :) Before adhering the sentiment to the card, I chopped it up into sections and ran my purple marker along the outside edges to make it stand out a bit more. To add some 'suspense', the punch line is on the inside of the card.


Because Red Hatters are known for their over-the-top fabulousness, I just had to add this gorgeous red bow. It was made in a snap with my Bow Easy tool. The embossing on the purple was inspired by the dots on the birthday cake.

I hope you will check out the PCP challenge thread and play along. If you haven't already signed up for your FREE membership, get over there and get it done. Melyssa gives out member's only freebies that are fantastic!!
