Birthday Cards

With Bugaboo's Christmas In July week long challenge I won 3'd place one of the days.  So here is what I made with two of the images I selected from my winnings!

The first card is made using Cupcake Peeker.  I just love his sweet innocent look!  I made this so it could be used for a boy or a girl...but leaning more towards being a baby boy card.  I colored him using chalks and ink.  I added three buttons and a die that says "Happy Birthday" and finished it with a bow.  Then I decided I wanted to make the inside pretty too...  I layerd it using the blue, an edge punch and some glitter polka dot paper.







My next card was done using Make it Snappy - Dottie Happy Birthday.  She was colored usng chalk and ink.  I also covered part of the image with Stickles and Glossy Accents.  I added an edge punch and a bow.  Then I did the inside of the card with a cupcake punch and a small flower.


Hope you like these!  Thanks for looking!
