Sweet Happy Birthday!

Today's card is for a sweet little girl, my great-niece, that just turned one.  I used my new Mama Elephant Pandamonium set and my favorite balloon stamp set from V's Sweet Ideas.  I paper pieced the balloon and heat embossed the #1 on it with white embossing powder.  The sentiment was also heat embossed with white embossing powder.  After dry embossing the panel behind the panda, I used distress inks to add color.  I used a direct to paper technique to add some white pigment ink to the clouds.  More cardstock was inked to make the grassy area and this panel was popped up over the patterned paper background.  Some bakers twine and some sequins (also from V's Sweet Ideas) finish off the front.

The interior has more paper pieced balloons and another sentiment.  I used the same die cut on the interior and more of the plaid patterned paper.

Cardstock: Bazzill (pink), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned Paper:  Recollections
Clear Stamps: Mama Elephant (Pandamonium), V's Sweet Ideas (Birthday Wish), Simon Says Stamp (I don't know the name of it but the #1 came in it)
Ink:  Versafine (Onyx Black), Versamark, Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Bundled Sage), Colorbox Pigment Ink (Frost White)
Tools/Embellishments: Hemptique baker's Twine, Zig Wink of Stella (Clear), Multi Medium Matte, My Favorite Things Die-namics (Blueprints 1, Wavy Edge), Stampendous embossing powder (White Opaque), Sequins (V's Sweet Ideas - Peony Foral 5mm), Darice embossing folder (Cloudy Sky)

I think this is a really cute card for a child. The balloon and twine is a fun detail, and I think the age on the ballon makes it even more personal. Great jib on the inside as well.
