Hapbeeeee Birthday to You!

Today is one of my brother's birthday. (I have 4) (And 3 sisters)

When I was making him a card I got a little carried away making cards.
Love when that happens.

This card isn't the one I ended up making for him but it is one of my favorites.

After I had the card all together I realized the pattern paper with the balloons on it had scattered confetti dots and the pattern paper with the candles did not. So of course I got out my Tulip Crystals Dimensional Fabric Paint and added dimensional dots to both sides.



*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front cut at 5.25 x 4 in. using 2 different pattern papers then cut diagonally.
*Bee cut at 2 in. from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge.
*Bee face from the Peachy Keen Just Baby Faces Assortment stamps.
*Present cut at 2 in. from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.
*Birthday wishes stamp and tag from the My Creative Time Tiny Tag Greetings set.
*Yellow frame cut at 3 x 2.5.
*Blue frame cut at 2.75 x 2.25and embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
*Details added using Gelly Roll pens.
*Pattern papers from my stash.
*Holiday Inspiration ribbon.
*Buttons and twine bows from my stash.

Thanks for visiting me in bloggyland.
Come back real soon!
