flowers & a balloon for your birthday

Where did she get that balloon?

A really fun thing I like to do with my stamps is use parts of one stamp with another. I don't know if there's an official name for this techniqe...or if it's even considered a technique. Whatever it is....I like doing it!

The main image on this card is a stamp from Elzybells called Flower Girl. I wanted her to have flowers AND a balloon. Sooooooo......I inked up the balloon on another image and stamp it on top :)



Cool beans huh! That balloon is on a stamp in an Elzybells Clear set called Party pup. Click HERE to see a card I made using that set. Her dress is paper pieced from the patterned paper. The little flowers on the grass are a single stamp that I colored in and cut out indiviually. Main image layer and green card stock are popped up on dimensionals. I punched a hole in the main layer to pull the ribbon through and tied a bow. All the coloring was done with markers. Now...who am I gonna give this card to? hummmm.....

Have an AWESOME weekend everyone!
