Happy Birthday LouLou!

Mornin' hens!  Today is my good friend LouLou's birthday!  She has an adorable four legged friend named Ginger so when I saw this stamp in the dollar bin at Michaels, I knew I had to have it for her birthday card.  


This was a super simple card to put together and I thought it turned out adorable! I stamped the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and colored it with Copics.  Then I cut the image out and adhered it to the card base using a few foam dimensionals.  I added some grounding using my Prismacolor pencils. Then I used a curved edge die and cut the bottom edge of the balloon from some polka dot DP.  I adhered this piece with foam dimensionals as well, then I trimmed the top edge of the balloon to match the top edge of the card.  


 I free hand cut a triangle and attached it to the bottom of the balloon and attached some string to it and to the pup's paw too!  To finish, I stamped the sentiment and added some faux stitching.
That's it for me today!  I hope you have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}

  5. What a brilliant card. I really love this card. Even though your little colouring is great, it's the most gorgeous card with so little colouring. You are so talented.
