Wild Birthday wishes...



My Nephew's 4th Birthday is coming up this month and I wanted to make him a fun card. I used Julia's sketch from the dare to get dirty challenge and also Jen Balcer's colourful challenge. There are stickles sparodically added on the base layer of the card, and I punched the dots out on the giraffe and layered a taken with teal panel behind so his dot's show up teal. I added a googly eye to the elephant for fun and popped his ear up on dimensionals. couple of party hats and we are in party mode...lol.

Stamps: Wild about you, hip hip hooray. Inks: old olive, pumpkin pie, taken with teal, so saffron and basic black. CS: pumpkin pie, old olive, taken with teal, so saffron, whisper white and basic black. Access: stickles, googly eye, dimensional, clear button, hemp twine and stamp a ma jig.

I don't use lots of bright colours so it is always a challenge for me. Kids Birthday cards should be bright and cheerful I think! This one has a little bling too!

Thanks so much for checking out my creations.
