Yay, It's Your Birthday!


Today I'm playing along with the Seize The Birthday Challenge. This time around the optional toppings are tic-tac-toe. So super fun!

I chose to go diagonal with birds, flowers, stencil. Here's my creation:

I just recently purchased the Mosaic Leaves stencil from Taylored Expressions and used it in combination with one of the Rectangle Masking Stencils (also from Taylored Expressions) to create the background. I really love how it turned out! The tropical bird, flowers and balloons are from Toucan Party by Avery Elle. So super cute!!! I stamped and die-cut these at a crafting retreat (remember when we could DO that?!?!!!), and they had been sitting in a zipper pouch just begging to be put to use :) I also had the toucan in that pouch, so I made a second version using that image:

Thanks for visiting!

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

  1. How fun is this card! Everything about it is so cute Lisa, great job!

  2. These are fabulous. Your leaf stencil is just perfect for the birds. I love how it gives a pop of colour without being too distracting.
