Happy Birthday


My second card today was created for the Just Us Girls and the Blog Named Hero challenges. I started with a white card base and layered on some pretty striped paper from the Doodlebug Happy Harvest 6x6 paper pad. Using some white cardstock I die cut the He Said, She Said speech bubble die from The Cat's Pajamas. Using a small stitched border die I impressed the stitched border around the outer edges of that speech bubble so it would match the stitching on the bottom of the panel. I then die cut the Birthday Balloons dies using the same Doodlebug paper and them popped them up using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. Using some Ranger Multi Medium Matte I adhered small pieces of orange and white Doodlebug bakers twine and then tied a bow at the bottom. I stamped the sock monkey, hat, and cupcake using The Cat's Pajamas Show Me The Monkey stamp set and colored them in using Copic markers. I fussy cut the images out and mounted them onto the card using some more foam dimensionals. The word Happy is from the Stamps of Life Large Greetings Stamp set and I colored it in using an orange Memento dual tip marker. I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the images for a bit of extra glimmer. I hope you like it!
