Bunch o' Animals Birthday Card (09/19/2012)


Today's card has a bunch o' animals on it - and that makes me happy!

I totally scrap-lifted this idea from the amazing Kelly Marie from Lawn Fawn's recent blog post on the Simon Says Stamp website.  You can check out her fabulous and inspirational card HERE.

I used several Critters sets: Critters Ever After (dragon), Critters in the Forest (racoon), Critters on the Farm (cow), Critters in the Burbs (doggie), and Critters in the Snow (penquin).  I also used Gnome Sweet Gnome for the flamingo.   I stamped out all the animals in black ink, then colored them with copic markers.  I used my new favorite, A Birdie Told Me for the word bubbles, and Hats Off to You for the sentiment.

I did just like Kelly Marie did, and made the sky background with two blue distress inks and also colored the grass with two green distress inks.  I also punched out the grass colored paper with a border punch.

Used pop-up dots for the word bubbles, and rolled glue dots for the animals. 

Here's hoping the birthday boy enjoys his card - it was fun to make :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
