Lawnscaping Challenge #24 - Celebrate!

Hello there!  It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  Challenge #124 is all about celebrating!  

We are sponsored this week by the super fabulous Lawn Fawn!

I can never have too many birthday cards on hand, so I chose to make another one to add to my stash.  I love mixing and matching stamp sets, and I did it again with this card!  I started off by creating a purple ombre background using distress inks.  I added some water splashes  and them mopped them up with a paper towel to get a fun splattered background. After it was all dry, I ran it through my diecut machine to add a stitched edge using the largest die in the Small Stitched Rectangles Stackables die set. I diecut some vellum using the Puffy Cloud borders, and then added a strip of Let's Polka in the Dark 6x6 paper pad to the bottom of the panel.  I just love the dragon in the  Critters Ever After stamp set and I knew I wanted to use him on my card.  I colored him and dicut him with the coordinating Critters Ever After dies.  Then I pulled out my Party Animal stamp set to stamp, color and diecut some balloons, the tiny cake, and a party hat for my dragon.  I popped everything up with foam tape, and added some accents with a white gel pen.  I stamped a sentiment from the Party Animal stamp set, and some stars from the Critters Ever After set to fill up the sky. To finish things off, I added a scattering of sequins.

Make a Wish
