Birthday - Scramble

Scramble time...if you have read my blog for a bit you know I LOVE the Hero Arts scrambles that occur every two weeks. Ninety minutes to make, photograph, and upload to the Flickr gallery your card based on parameters provided by the hostess at the start of the 90 minutes - its fun and it gets your mojo going.  

I try to give myself 75 minutes for the card; then I have 15 minutes to photograph and upload. That seems to be the best time division for me.  

I don't feel rushed, because I know I can photograph and upload pretty fast with my iPhone and my two favorite iPhone photo apps.  Photomarkr - allows you to photograph and add a watermark, then I open it with Camera Awesome for cropping, fine tuning, and uploading right to the Flickr gallery. Both apps work on the iPad too; I just like my iPhone camera better.

Here is my card, our theme was to make a celebration card be it birthday or other.  I haven't made a birthday card for a  while that wasn't for a specific person.  So I enjoyed just putting a card together for my stash.  Below are the card front, the envelope back and the card interior.

 Thanks for stopping by.
