Birthday Fun



I found these cool little embellishments from Sassafras in my stash the other day and I realised  this number 4 card goes perfectly with this week's Just Us Girls colour challenge.  I paired it with some Stampin' Up paper, a Woodware punch and some Cosmo Cricket stickers.  I thought the pinwheel/flowers looked a little bland so I added patterns to them with Glossy Accents as well as highlighting the middles of them.  Now all I need is to find a kid having a 4th birthday...



Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Punches: (Pinwheel/Flower) Woodware Craft Collection, (5/16" hole punch (McGill)
Impression Plate: (Canvas) Papertrey Ink
Stickers: (Tiny Type) Cosmo Cricket
Embellishment: (Paper Whimsies Head Count) Sassafras
Other: (Glossy Accents) Ranger

Ack! Can I just say how much I love your card? There are a lot of great elements going on here, but I am completely digging how you did the pinwheels. Love those crocs! Hey, is the craft cave getting boarded up for the weekend? Hope all is well there.
