Birthday Wishes!

Happy Wednesday, my dear friends! I hope you're having a lovely day. :o)

One of the many things I love about 7 Kids College Fund is their incredible variety! The most elegant of projects can come to life with products available, as well as the sweetest of cards for a child. In this case, I combined sweet La-La Land Crafts metal dies with adorable SugarPea Designs stamps to help celebrate a little kiddo's birthday. :o)

This is my last card for this month's I Feel the Love Project collection, where we have dedicated April to creating for children who are abused, neglected, or at-risk and being cared for at Tennyson Center for Children. I hope my contributions bring a smile to their beautiful hearts.
The precious bunnies are from SugarPea Designs' One Big Hoppy Family stamp set. After coloring them with Copics, I fussy-cut them out and stacked them for a fun little design. They and the balloons are popped up with foam tape for dimension.

The Heart Banner and Heart Border metal dies are from La-La Land Crafts. I love the stitched detailing amidst the whimsical designs! For an extra dose of sweetness, I added the heart cut-outs from the border to the intersections of the banner. The base, balloons, and gift are inked with varying Tim Holtz Distress Inks. For more texture, I used coordinating shades of twine for the balloon strings. :o) Wink of Stella Clear adds shimmer to the balloons, while Star Dust Stickles sparklify the pink parts of the bunny ears and feet.
I also used some My Craft Spot goodies on my card, including the twine. My sentiment is from Tiny Tags 3, which is cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tags Metal Dies. The gift and balloons are Treasure Box Designs cut files from their Make a Wish collection. My cheerful papers are all from Doodlebug's Hello Spring collection.

Thank you for hopping on by! I wish you a sparkly day. :o)
