Birthdays - I'm aging like fine wine, getting complex and full bodied.

Been thinking about birthdays because I've been working on birthday cards.  Don't know how I came up so short but I really have fallen behind and now it's catch up time. I was able to make three cards that I will be sending very soon. My sister, great grandson and one of my granddaughters have birthdays in the very near future. Sometimes I really enjoy crafting cards with the recipient in mind. Here are the two cards I made for the little ones.


The die cuts on this card were cut using my Cricut Explore. Dressed up the party hat with sequins and just poured on the glitter for the number three. As you can guess Lucas is turning three and he likes turtles.


Coloring was the time consuming element on this card. I used colored pencils and blended with Gamsol(mineral spirits) and paper stumps. In real life the cupcakes are glittery as I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over all. The cupcake outlines, sentiment and small embellishments are actually Dazzles stickers from Hot Off the Press. The pink background cardstock is from Bazzil and the dotted background is paper from Paper Wishes. Both the circle and scalloped circle are die cut and I fussy cut the squares and banner.
