Happy Birthday From Peanut!

Happy Hump Day Friends! I hope your day is going well so far! We have made it half way through the week after all! I know its only Wednesday, but I'm so ready for the weekend to be here already! Come on weekend!
This is sweet Peanut from Our Craft Lounge. I thought he would make a perfect birthday wish and balloon deliverer for a little girl. My cousin's oldest little girl had a birthday on the 1st and I made this card for her.
Since I'm not good at masking and stamping images all together, I decided to color the balloons and then cut them out and pop them up off the other image. Now that I'm looking at the card, I feel like I should have added more grass around the gift and Peanut's feet...oh well...I'm learning! LOL!
I really love the look of layering my border punches and now I can't stop doing it! I think it adds so much more interest to the card. What do you think? Hmmm?
THANKS for zipping by to see me today, please join me tomorrow for more card FUN! HUGS!

Pin It!
