Happy Birthday

Hello friends.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and had time to get inky!  Unfortunately I did not, however, I do have 2 cute little cards to share that I made a couple weeks ago and had forgotten to post.  I'm really in love with this new little die from SSS called Birthday Circle, and also a free little stamp set from SSS that I received for my birthday last month called Birthday Celebration.  Take a look:

Aren't those little elephants in their party hats just the cutest?!!  I stamped and colored the elephants with my Copics, and then fussy cut them and the balloons out.  My backgrounds were smooshed and then attached to coordinating color bases, and then I added the birthday die cuts and elephants.  A few sequins finished up both cards. 

I am adding both cards to Simon's Monday Challenge where you are to make your own background, and what could be simpler than a smooshed background, and also Simon's Wednesday Challenge where you are asked to use a A Bit O Green for St. Patrick's Day.  I figure my Bermuda Bay ink is enough of a green to qualify for the Wednesday challenge.  :0)

You can link up to both challenges HERE and HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
