This week at The Paper Variety, we're celebrating someone's birthday! :)
Friday is my birthday and I'll be the big 3-9! Woot!
At TPV, we're celebrating with a challenge fit for the occasion :)
I created this shaped card using my new Live Simply cricut cart.
I love this lite-cart, all the images are soo cute!
I used my Paper Studio woodgrain embossing folder for the trunk, Echo Park Dots & Stripes for the top of the tree and the banner flags, and my Paper Smooches stamps for the fun sentiment. I just had to add googly eyes to that cute owl, too!
I also followed this inspiration photo challenge at Birthday Sundaes.
Such a sweet photo, but I don't own many cupcake themed supplies. So instead I chose to pull inspiration from the flags and all the colors that I could see in the photo.. brown, green, blue, yellow, orange, pink and white! Whew! :)
I hope you join our special challenge at TPV by entering your birthday banner project! You could be the random winner of 2 My Mind's Eye boy and girl "Hip Hooray" collections! :)
