Cheerful Birthday Card feat My Favorite Things Happy Hippos

 

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a card I made combining the My Favorite Things Sketch challenge with the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. The result is a fun birthday card - and this time I could not stay away from throwing in a rainbow!
The images and the sentiment all come from the My Favorite Things Happy Hippos stamp set. I stamped them on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.


For the top portion of my card I used one of the designs from the My Favorite Things Sweet Celebration 6x6" paper pad, which I cut using the Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges Die-Namics.
I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder by Ranger and then it was time for the finishing touches. I added some white gel pen details over all the images, and I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen to add glitter to the balloons, the cupcakes, the birthday hat and the cake. Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard on the candle flames and the cake decorations.


And that's it for today! I really hope you guys liked this bright, colorful birthday card. As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I will be entering it in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #379 and in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Happy Birthday.
I will be back soon with another fun project, and in the meantime I wish you all a great day!
