Hooray for Birthdays!

Today's card is my second design team creation for the February Moodboard Challenge @ Craftin' Desert Divas. I will also be entering it @ Star Stampz for "Make it Girly", @ Cute Card Thursday for "Cute Critters", @ Crafty Catz for "Birthdays" and @ Crazy 4 Challenges for "Add Cake".

The Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink is blended through the Sorted Shapes Stencil 2 on the top half and then I used patterned paper on the bottom half. The raccoon is from the Birthday Surprise digi stamp set and the sentiment is from the Birthday Sentiments digi stamp set. I did the coloring with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.

Inside sentiment is from the Say It Big clear stamp set and the pattern was achieved by spraying the stencil with water after working on the front of the card and pressing it on to the card.

You can see it much better in the first picture up above, but I added Glossy Accents to the party hat and clear Wink of Stella to the icing on the cake and the sentiment banner that I hand trimmed. The wrapped ribbon and bow helps to blend the transition to the patterned paper and the pink sequins from the Pastel Paradise pack were the perfect color accent!

Until next time~
