It's My Birthday

Happy birthday to ME! I have been planning on creating a fun card for my birthday and I think I accomplished that! My original idea was just to have a stamped or die-cut noise maker put on a card. But I just couldn't find the perfect item so I thought of a different way to get a noise maker on my card.

A while back I participated in a challenge where you used non-crafting items on your project. Since then I have seen common items in a different way. So, obviously I decided that putting an actual noise maker on my card would be the only thing to do! I picked up a bag of noise makers from WalMart, about 8 for $1, gotta love cheap! I stamped the swirly dots in black ink. I also used my new heat embosser on the two outside swirls. To add some more color and pop I also used my new Stampin' Up markers to create some dots along the swirls.

The phrase "Go Wild" comes from my new cartridge, Create-a-Critter. I was flipping through the guide looking for the Happy Birthday phrase, but when I came across "Go Wild" I stopped.

Overall, this is a fun card and I got to use new tools and techniques.

Thank you for reading my blog. It's all I could ask for on my special day!
