It's time for another Ribbon Carousel Challenge!

We are proud to announce this week’s sponsor, Avocado Arts.

Avocado Arts is a high-quality, clear photopolymer stamp company offering stamps and digital die cuts that are made in the USA. We are based out of Minnesota and launched in May, 2011. Our stamp line reflects a clean, graphic style with a touch of whimsy, style and flair. Each month, we release a 4 x 6, clear photopolymer set with images that are interchangeable, giving you ultimate versatility and endless possibilities with all your crafting projects. Our clear photopolymer set comes complete with coordinating images, sentiments, builder images and a background builder that are timeless. As an added benefit, the stamp sets are designed with elements from each set that coordinate with the next months set, and so on. We also offer digital die cut files that coordinate with our stamp images.

Customers can shop our website at www.avocadoarts.com to purchase current and past stamp sets as our sets never retire. We also offer a Stamp Club that allows you to save money on your purchases each month, at the price point that you choose. We have a very talented Design Team called the “Pit Crew” that shares projects throughout the month on our blog www.avocadoarts.blogspot.com 
giving you endless inspiration and ideas when creating.

This week, we will have TWO winners, each will receive this SUPER cute new stamp set!!

Now, on to my card for this week's challenge.   This week I am inking up the brand new There She Goes Ba Donkey Donk stamp set and using the Birdie Brown Birthday Cake digital image to make a fun birthday card!  "Donkey" is a term of endearment in my book, so if I have called you a donkey, it's all good!  

and here's the inside:


Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics:  E37, E35, E34, E33, E31, E30, E59, E57, E55, BG10
CS:  PTI white, kraft, and dark chocolate
Accessories:  Peach Fizz Vintage Seam Binding, Cantalope Baker's Twine from the Twinery,  PTI dark chocolate button, pearls

We'd love for you to play along with us!
