Didn't Forget

     I'm working on my stash of birthday cards again so you'll see another two or three of them this week.  This one is made using one of the cutest elephant images from Bugaboo Stamps. 

     I started by coloring with ProMarkers, then added glitter to both balloons for some sparkle.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, matted it and added it to the bottom of the image.  I cut the image piece with a stitched die from CUTplorations.  The yellow part of the background was cut with a stitched Memory Box die and then layered onto some bright pink CS before adhering it to the card front.

     I found some delightful polka dot ribbon and used my bow maker to tie a bowtie bow.  I have to use a bow maker to tie any of those.  It's not something I can do with just my two hands and still keep the bows straight.  :-D

This is adorable. I love the glittery balloon. I need to build a stash of birthday cards again. I have been doing them on an 'as-needed' basis for most of this past year. It is nice to have some extra ones on hand. hugs, Teresa
