Happy Monday to all! It is the beginning of another week. Boy do I have a lot I would like to accomplish. Unfortunately I am not feeling well so I am not to sure what I will be able to do today. I did manage to get one card done for you at least today.

The card I am sharing today is one of my favorite sets from Sweet -n Sassy. It is called Birthday Buddies. I love the little critters in this set and I can guarantee I will be sharing more of this set with you in the future. They are the cutest and so fun to color!!!

I used the Sweet -n Sassy's Sweet Stop Sketch #16 for the layout.

I don't often make long and narrow cards so this was a neat change for me. Since I colored the skunk in skunk colors (black and white with pink cheeks and cake), I decided to use those colors for my color scheme. I love how the black makes the other colors pop.

Although it is hard to see in the picture, I tried to add more texture to my card. I used a dry embossing folder to emboss the black and the white behind the skunk. I also added liquid applique to the tail and top of the head.

The octagons are a new set of spellbinders I recently purchased. I love the shape of them and I can see they will definitely get lots of use. The border is the new Spellbinder Fleur De Lis Border set.

I haven't done the inside of the card yet but I am thinking of writing "I hope your birthday comes out smelling like a rose" I thought after the fact that it would have been fun to make it a scented card, but I did not make this one scented. Next Time!!!

Card Recipe-
Stamps- Sweet 'N Sassy- Birthday Buddies
Paper: Pink Pirouette DP, Pink Pirouette, black, white glittered paper, white CS
Tools: Spellbinders Octagons, Swiss dots embossing folder, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Border. liquid applique

I hope you all have a wonderful day!! I hope it is full of sunshine! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Hi Chris. I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. That always affects my stamping but it sure didn't yours. I love these colors. They are my fav.. I never make this size card either. Great job. You asked about my stick pins on my card. I got everything at Hobby Lobby but have seen them at Mikes too. I just used jewelry parts. The end is the backing on earrings. You can get everything at HL or Mikes. If you need any more info just let me know...Take care.
