Happy Brrrthday!

I decided to create a card tonight just for fun! I love doing stuff just for fun! I played with some Studio Calico paper that I just got, along with a fun Skipping Stones Design stamp set and my Tombow markers! YAY for happy things!

So...funny little thing. I took three shots like this. One with the orange paper as the background, one with the brownish paper as the background and this one. I decided to showcase it using this one. HA! You can see the other two if you click on the photo and check out my Flickr stream. Oh, the joys of being indecisive! Just Say'n!

I used several layers to give the card dimension. I love doing that! I created the fun banner at the top (totally inspired by the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday), by punching lots of small circles and then putting just a dab of Tombow Mono Liquid on each dot and then I placed the string onto the dots. I love the look and totally need to keep this in mind for future designs! Such a fun little thing to add to a card or layout!

  17. I love the orange and blue combo...I don't use it enough. And the penguin is just the right touch of basic black and white. The banner is a super-cute idea too and I'll have to try this for Brook's next birthday.
