2 Birthday Cards


Hi there.  I've got two birthday cards to share today.  First up is a card using some of my very favorite Lawn Fawn critters.  Almost all of my Lawn Fawn sets have animals in them, but I keep coming back to this adorable hippo and his birdie friend.  The patterned papers are Lawn Fawn, too.


I am entering this card at Lawnscaping #107 Calling All Critters, Addicted to CAS #64 Animal, Less is More #226 2 or 4 legs, Seize the Birthday where the toppings option is animals, Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #271 and Just Us Girls #295 Paper Piecing.







My next card is inspired by the June sketch at Happy Little Stampers and uses the colors from ColourQ #293.    I changed things up just a little bit--rather than a relaxing beach scene with a hammock, I created a festive party on a card with streamers.  My palm trees are the card borders and my setting sun is confetti starburst.  





I am also entering this at Simon Says Wednesday where the challenge this week is Make it Masculine.



Thanks for Visiting

  3. Love both these cards. I never think to paper pierce my critters till I see someone else do it. Then I forget again. That hippo is so cut. And your second card, wow really love how you have done this.
