Child's Birthday Card

I combined two challenges in my latest card creation.  Heart 2 Heart is celebrating kid's birthdays this week and the a la Card Monkey Monkey Challenge #67 is a celebration card with pennant.
I made this card using the new Zoology Stamp Set, which I'm having a lot of fun with.  The animals are stamped in Smokey Plum and Sunflower.  The balloons came from a different set.  I used some embroidery floss to stitch the balloon string around each animal.  The star border and the Celebrate Banner came from the July Stamp of the Month.

Next I layered on some cardstock pennant triangles separated by tiny Licorice Opaques.  You can also see the little dabs of glitter glue I added to some of the stars here:

The result is a whimsical little card.  I think it could be done up in a variety of color palettes and look really cute.  The Sunflower cardstock & ink is kind of overpowering in the pictures, but is less obnoxious in person.  The Smokey Plum isn't as dark as it looks here.  Today was not a good picture-taking day for me!


  1. Very cute! I love the colors and the design idea. Very fun! Great job!

  2. Very cute! I like how you combined all the different stamps, and your color scheme is an unexpected but nice one. Thanks for sharing with us at H2H!

  3. Lovely! I really like the Licorice Opaques on the banner, and the dimension of the floss. Thanks for playing along with us at H2H this week!

  4. bright and cheerful! I like the how the animals all seem like they're being held up by balloons and floating.

  5. What a great card! I love the little details on the pennants and the stars. Thanks for playing this week!
