It's Your Birthday!

I have been enjoying using Square Pegs from Gina K Designs and illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  For this card I used the balloon stamp that I stamped in several different colors then cut out.  After stamping them  I decided that they needed to be embossed with clear.  So I swiped over each of them with versamark ink and embossed them before cutting them out.  To get the bouquet right I laid them out on a piece of scratch until I was happy with the way they looked then I covered them with another piece of scratch  paper and carefully turned them over then all I had to do was apply some scor-tape easy peasy.  The hippo is from another of Melanie's sets Just so Hippy.  Melanie is sharing another card I made using Square Pegs so if you have a minute head over to her blog and check it out.  Thank you for stopping by.
