PPP 4th birthday celebrations!

Hi there!

I'm thrilled to be joining in to celebrate Pretty Pink Posh's 4th birthday in a 3-day blog hop event!


To celebrate the 3 days of celebration, I've made 3 cards:

My first card shows off the new set, Birthday Friends.  They are so adorable! I used a Scallop Frames die to in-set the birthday cake and had the party-goers stay at the front.

This guy is my fave.

For my next card, I used the other 2 kids in the Birthday Friends set, and the new Love Shaker die. I snipped the word "love" from the die and was left with a fun heart frame for the background.

I used a sponge and some white ink to create a whimsical polka-dotted background (the whimsy is in how the polkas are so random, haha.)

My last card is completely 1-layer. No special design, but I admit I wanted to color the Birthday Scene stamp - it is so cute! I stamped it, then masked all of the animals and balloons and banner, and sponged a sky and ground. I then splattered brown ink onto the ground and white ink onto the sky. When I removed the masks, all I had left to do was to color the scene.

My Maia was going to a birthday party last weekend, and out of the 3 cards, she chose to bring this one along. It is so sweet!

I hope you like what I've created. It wouldn't be a birthday without gifts:
