It's Your Birthday - Squeal



Playing along with a couple challenges today - Simon Says Stamp's Happy Birthday challenge and Anything Goes at SPARKS.

I recently got Paper Smooches' Party Posse set.  The critters are so cute and I chose this little guy for a really quick and easy card.  I cut a few random strips of patterned paper from SC's Snippet's collection, adding a bit of stitching detail.

Then I colored the little critter (I'm really not exactly sure what it is, hamster?) with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut him.  The word bubbles are Lawn Fawn....I actually have the dies, but I was lazy to go upstairs and get them, so I just fussy cut them and added the PS sentiments.

Hope that your week is going well!

Paper/Cardstock:  Studio Calico - Snippets 6x6 pad; Avery Elle - White Cardstock; CTMH - White Cardstock
Stamps:  Paper Smoches - Party Posse; Lawn Fawn - A Birdie Told Me
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Other:  Spectrum Noir Markers; Tombow - Mono Adhesive; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape; Sewing Machine
