They say you're only young once - Craftaholics R Us #

Wednesday February 21, 2018
 
Hard to believe February is almost over.
I hope it's been a great month for you.
The Green team is back with another fun challenge at
Craftaholics R Us #8 and our theme is a favorite..
ANYTHING GOES  ... woo hoo  love that theme
 
 
 
So with a new year there are birthdays so I took advantage of the ATG's theme and made a birthday card.
This circle was cut a long time ago and with the My Favorite Things stitch die. I used Art Impressions "they say" sentiment and then a Simon Says "happy birthday" and stamped on the circle. I had a piece of  My Favorite Things die strip so used it for the grounding for the pets. The Crazy dog and cat were colored during the summer of 2017 using Mission paints. I die cut a Lil Inker balloon and used the Spectrum Noir glitter pen over the balloon and then added it to the card and added embroidery floss as the string. I added a white gel pen highlight to the balloon.
The background Kraft I ran through a numbers embossing folder and used Ranger ink and just skimmed the top to bring the numbers out.
