Birthday card

My friend Sally's little one turned 5 a week or so, and today is his party. I had plans to make a pirate card, but HAD to use my new A*Muse stamps instead, lol.

To start with, I stamped the blow up pool in Cool Caribbean ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then I masked the pool and stamped the lifeguard chair in Close to Cocoa. I masked this as well, and then stamped the little bird on top of the chair in black ink.

The little dino was stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White, colored in with a Gable Green marker, and then cut out. I used my craft knife to cut a slit in the pool and put the dino inside. The chair and bird were colored in with reinkers and a blender pen. Then I used my blender pen and color spritzer tool to spritz the sky in.

I punched the corners with the ticket corner punch, and stamped the backgrounds with the retired Paisley Print bg from Stampin' Up.

To finish the card off, I tied some sheer white polka dot ribbon around the edge, and added a chipboard tag that I cut out with my Cuttlebug. The tag was stamped with "Wish" from the Small Sayings stamp set and then I used direct to paper to color the tag green. I hooked it to the ribbon with a little jump ring.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Don't forget to swing by the A*Muse A*Palooza blog and join in on one of the challenges. Tons of fun for all!
