Pinata is Hoping for a Smashing Birthday

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by on this wonderful Wednesday! I am heading back to school for a Teacher Workday, which means I will be meeting with teachers during collaboration time. Each grade level has one hour scheduled throughout the day and we will be meeting with them to kick off third quarter. I am looking forward to seeing everyone after Winter Break and hearing all about their vacations/trips.

Today I am sharing a fun and colorful birthday card. I just received this My Favorite Things pinata die for Christmas and was super excited to cut it out. I did look at a few of the MFT design team projects to see their choice of colors and fringe. Once I decided on the plaid paper, finding the pinata's colors were a breeze. 

I used this week's sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

I used the MFT cloud stencil and Broken China distress ink to create a background on white cardstock. Then I cut the stitched circle to the size I needed to fit my pinata directly in the center. I used the snow drift die to make a hill of grass.

I am submitting this card to the My Favorite Things Birthday Challenge.

The stamped sentiment is by Lawn Fawn ~ Year Seven. Pink pearls were added in the lower right corner.
