Birthday Animals

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a great start.
I have a new card to share today using a cute image from Bugaboo stamps. I've had this image for a little while, but never actually used it. And it's so cute!!

I found this one in Bugaboo's Word Art section.

 A pretty easy card to make. After coloring with copic markers I simply mounted it onto the card front, added a strip of designer paper and then a scalloped edge to the bottom.   I applied glassy glaze to the balloons and glitter to the hats, ice cream topping and presents. The dots around the image were done using an old SU stamp. I added a button and some twine as embellishment and finished the card off by sewing along the top and bottom of the card.

I am entering this card here:
