I Forgot

Hello again my friends.  I'm back with another card for a new challenge blog that I found.  Crafty Card Makers has some great challenges.  This week's challenge was to make a Belated Birthday Card.  I'm always in need of one of those because my poor brain is the size of a peanut and I don't always remember birthdays.

I chose this cute little elephant from a TCP Stamp called Circus Time.  I used my BIC Markers to color him in.  I used my glitter gel pens for the stand and ball.  I even added some Sakura Glitter pen to the curlie Q's on his hat.  I punched out the ball with a 5/8" circle punch.  I tried to use bright and colorful patterned paper and card stock for a cheery card.  The card base is from Colorbok, the DP is from DCWV, The yellow and pink card stocks are from Recollections.  I cut the image down to 3.5" square, inked the edges with SU Coral, matted it on the same blue as the base, then a yellow.  All mats are 1/8th larger in size.  I printed out the sentiment and inked the edges with the same Coral.  I used pop dots on the sentiment and the ball.  Adding four red rhinestones finished off this cute belated birthday card.

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you guys are staying warm.  It's bitter cold here in NE PA and my feet feel like blocks of ice.  Take care and God bless!
