splash bday

splash-bdayI made a card for two challenges the AAA Summer Fun challenge and the Seize the Birthday -tie one one.   since i tied the shark to the card it fits.  its my  friend who likes sharks (collecting them not swimming with them) but I think  it’s cute enough even for those that aren’t particularly  fond of these  sea creatures.  The stamp is made by  PrettyGraftic.

90 balloons

frog&90bsI wanted to create a fun yet great card  for a 90th birthday and the birthday gal likes frogs   My favorite birthday image is from A Day for Daisies , has  a frog floating holding  3 balloons.( i though about adding the birthday number while making  the card i created Wednesday (see it).    For this occasion the card  needed  87 more balloons.   I could have made a larger card to display all the balloons on the front  but since the A2 is my favorite  size, and i have A2 envelopes, I put the balloons on the front, back, and inside.

Stickles were applied to the frog  so he sparkles.    Happy  90th birthday Vera. See the inside below   The challenge is Seize the birthday anything goes
