Happy Birthday!

As there are quite a few challenge blogs having a birthday or anything goes challenges this week I'm entering this card into five challenges. Any more than that and I'll only confuse myself lol

ABC Challenge is I for In Pairs

Sew Many Challenges #80, is Birthday

Squigglefly Challenge #5 Birthday cards

Sundays with Crissy #26 Happy Birthday

Papertake Weekly challenge is Anything goes

This is the first time that I've used this image and it's so cute

On a card like this I'm not a lover of white space so I've filled some of the space with a random three dot pattern. Saw this on Create & Craft with Mel Heaton a while back and I really like the effect

This little bunny looks as though she wants to eat all the cakes. Can't say that I blame her, I think they look pretty good too lol

I've distressed all the edges of the papers and card using another Mel Heaton tip. She recommended that when you're inking edges don't use the ink pad direct as it can damage the surface in making it rough. She advised to use a piece of Cut and Dry foam to lift the ink and then apply it

Materials used

Stamped image from LOTV
Sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie
Backing paper from Making Cards magazine
Memento ink pad
This time I used 3D foam pads to raise the images
Crop=a-dile Corner Chomper
