Birthday Wishes

How about a clean and simple card today?

The card base is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock.

The black background is 4 1/8"x2 7/8."  I used one of the Border Dies from Jaded Blossom to cut the scallop at the bottom.  I cut a white rectangle at 2"x4" and then used six different Distress Inks to create the ombre effect in the background.  I used: squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, dried marigold, carved pumpkin, candied apple, & fired brick.

The dog silhouette is a stamp from Paper Smooches.  It is from the Paws for a Cause stamp set.  I heat embossed it on the white rectangle before I created the ombre background.

The sentiment is also from Jaded Blossom.  It is from the Dog-Gone Awesome stamp set.

I made this for the following challenges:
Less Is More: three adjacent color wheel colors
Pile It On: fire or red/orange color scheme
Crazy 4 Challenges: use an animal
CASology: youth
Cardz TV: anything goes

Tons of Fun

This fun shaped card is for my godson's birthday, which is coming up at the end of the month.

The card was made by using an elephant from "ZooBalloo" to create the base.  I cut two of the shadows and adhered them together at the top.  

The balloons are from "Birthday Bash."  I used foam tape to adhere them at the top and regular glue to adhere them under the trunk.  The flag is from "Create a Critter."  I hid the face on the flag and then stamped my sentiment on the flag.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Mini Messages set.  I used foam tape to adhere the top part and regular glue to adhere the stick under the trunk.  I added a bow from "The First Few Years" to finish off the front.

I used two different stamps to create my sentiment on the inside.  The top part is from Jaded Blossom, the Party Animal stamp set.  The bottom part is from My Favorite Things, the Adorable Elephants set.
