Who's having a birthday?

Here is a sweet and simple birthday card using Hampton Art Clear stamps, nestability dies and a bit of fussy cutting to cut out balloons. I used pop dots to pop the top balloon for more dimension. I masked the image of the owl and sponged in the background inks.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

Happy Easter- Embossed Bird

Happy Easter everyone. Christ has risen. He is alive! We serve a risen Savior.

I thought this card signified Spring and joy.
