Happy Birthday

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.

This week DRS Designs is sponsoring 365 Cards. Here's a card I created using their sketch design for yesterday.

The card base is white with a layer of Pretty in Pink stamped with our Interlocking Hearts background in VersaMark ink. The sentiment was stamped in Pretty in Pink ink on the same pink CS, cute with nesties and layered on a white scalloped nestie oval. I added some pink dots with a marker and a sheer pink ribbon. The  little punched umbrellas on the vertical strip were embedded embossed after punching the white strip with a border punch. The horizontal strip was punched with the same border punch. The pink strip was embossed with a CB Mr & Mrs border folder, then layered on the white strip.

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.
