Happy Birthday!

>> Monday, July 22, 2013

I hope you have all had a great weekend and got a reprieve from the heat wave!! This weekend has been so pleasant!! My husband and I were able to sit out on the deck and enjoy our swing. Something we haven't been able to do as much as we'd like. It felt so good!!

Today I want to share with you a card I created using our new Hula Pig. I think you will be seeing a lot of her in the near future. She is just too cute!!

I stamped the easy dot background in Navy ink on So Saffron paper and layered it on the white card base. The sentiment was also stamped in Navy on white CS, then layered on So Saffron and then Navy CS that was punched with a shell type border. The paper flower was added with a glue dot. For the main image, I stamped the fanfare square in Navy ink on white CS, die cut the center out, then layered it on white, So Saffron and Navy squares. The Hula Pig was stamped on white CS, with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics, then fussy cut. I also cut the strands of her grass skirt and curled them a bit before centering her inside the opening of the frame with glue dots. I think she goes great with this birthday sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. There's still a couple of days to join this week's Lucky Stripes challenge. You can see details here.

Until next week,

I love how you have her peeking through the frame and the sentiment is just perfect on this card!
