Happy Friday

Happy Friday! I'm always just so happy when I make it to the weekend, especially on a release week! I'm not quite sure why, because I usually end up working even longer hours on the weekend playing catch-up. But there's just something so exciting about the possibilities of all that could be accomplished during the weekend that just makes me giddy. :)

So today I bring you a happy card. This one uses the You Say It's Your Birthday set from The Cat's Pajamas. Don't you just love this Cogsmo paper from Cosmo Cricket? It's my most favorite birthday paper - good for boys or girls. The Celebrating Penguin is stamped on a square cut and embossed with the Nestabilities classic squares and then colored with Copic markers. I then stamped the image again on the patterned paper and cut out just the balloon to pop up. I added some dots around the square and then matted with more Cogsmo paper and a thin black mat. The vertical layers are all Cogsmo paper matted with black, and the blue layer is embossed with the Dots & Circles Cuttlebug folder. I stamped the little Happy Birthday sentiment and placed it as a little tab under the image square. Everything is matted on a black card base and I finished off with some diamond glaze & glitter mixture to make the balloon sparkle.

Okay, that's all for now, folks. Have a happy Friday!

  4. i love the color combo on this one. The layout is fun too. I have that embossing plate and I love it, the only problem is that I dont have a machine yet so my hand gets a little tired using the bone folder to do the embossing. Some day I'll get one. Have a nice weeekend. Melissa at ihaveprettierstuff.blogspot.com
