Hello Birthday

Hello everyone!

I'm back with another birthday card.  This is the occasion that I use the most and I think most of us do.  I put this set from The Alley Way Stamps on my desk and the whale kept looking at me just wanting me to make a card with him.

So I did, and here it is!

I used the TAWS Sea Mates and stamped out the whale with Memento Onyx black ink and coloured him in with copics.  I used the Wink of Stella glitter pen to add some sparkle.

I cut out the back panel from a MME 6x6 paper pad and used Evergreen Bough distress ink and went around the edges to make it pop a bit.  I used the MFT Stitched diagonal rectangles for the second panel and stamped the sentiment in Memento as well.   I took the little bubble stamp from the WPlus9 Bubble Talk and used it to create a background on the Lawn Fawn Scalloped circles die cut and I used Hero Arts Tide Pool ink.  I also used the Tide Pool for the little squirt on top of the whale.

I took the stitched circle die from the Stitched Banner die set and cut out the circle as well as the wave from the same patterned paper as the first panel and I used the same distress too. 

And once again, I used the Marshmallow 4mm & 6mm sequins to finish off the card.  I hoarded those sequins for so long I had to finally start using them.
