It's a Birthday Bash!

Hello Fellow Crafters. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
What a fabulous morning it is. The boys are at a Boy Scouts' car wash for part of the day and my daughter is making her friend a card before heading over to another friend's house for a few hours. That leaves me to my cards. I find this time to be the best time since it is rules, no paper-work, no standards to follow...just creative time.

I made three birthday cards using the same cartridge (Birthday Bash) and the same basic colors. Just wanted to see what I could come up with. Inside each card it is stamped "Happy Birthday" in black ink.
 The bunny was cut at 3".

Foam dots were used to add dimension to bunny and present.
 The fox was cut at 4" and adhered with foam dots. 

"You Rock" was cut from Plantin Schoolbook at 1/2".

Here are the balloons before they were altered. I cut off the black cardstock strings, so I could add white craft thread.

I have never entered so many challenges at one time before, but I thought why not try. Let's see what happens.

My nieces's 17th birthday is tomorrow, so I will be working on a card for her soon. Looking forward to making some more cards.

Stay Creative,

  5. I like them all Georgiana. I need to make a card for a teenager. It's going to be a tough one, but I think I'm incorporating a guitar and You Rock like you did. Especially like that you changed out the strings on the balloons.--Pat N.
