BeachBall.Birthday Card

Hi Blog Friends, It's mid summer and I don't even want to THINK about it ending! Even though the upcoming August calendar is weighing on me. This card came out cute due to the Echo Park paper
and a darling digi image from Sweet & Sassy. This is my Niece's birthday card for her party tomorrow night.
I used MFT Sun die, a SU scallop punch, ribbon and some yummy Papertrey Ink CS. If you haven't tried PaperTrey card stock, do yourself a favor and try it. It's so nice and heavy and the colors are great. The stamp is Flourishes.
I tried Dorcas technique for a making a cloud background but it didn't come out very good. Oh well, practice make perfect! She has a tutorial on her blog HERE. At least I tried something new! I wrote "Have a ball on your birthday! snort! haha Corny but cute...

Here are the links for the challenges.

Hi all, I used all my baby cards in the last 2 weeks so I need to make one to keep on hand. That, and I love to make baby cards. Just love the soft colors and cute images.
This image comes from Phindy's Place digital stamps. It's called Sweet Dreams. I am playing along with this weeks challenge "Double UP" which is to use 2 of something on your card.
I used Cosmo Cricket DP from the Earth Love collection, PaperTrey CS and twill ribbon. The stamps are CTMH.(the stars and sentiment).
See you soon!!!!
