Fantasy Stamper Guest-Animal Antics

Hey there Friends! I'm guesting at Fantasy Stampers again today for their mid-challenge post. The challenge is Animal Antics. Why don't you play along? :) 

I had to use my Lawn Fawn "Party Animals" set for this card cuz it's so cute! I also used Lawn Fawn Bannerific stamp and die for the sentiment. I tried the partial die cut technique that I've been seeing on you tube to spotlight my birthday animals. You can't tell because it's covered up but the circle is just 3/4's of a circle. 

 Behind it I sponged a piece of water color paper with 2 yellow distress inks. A variety of sequins were used to create a party feel. (Pretty Pink Posh, Lucy's, and Doodlebug) oh, and I added a silver twine bow.
 I was inspired by Laura Bassen's SSS Meowy Christmas card  for the design and Melissa Denny's card (here) for the colors. 

I had a few other card challenges in mind too. 

Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge -Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday -Pocket Card or Anything Goes 
Jo's Scrapshack 112 -Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks -Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday -Sparkles (my sequins sparkle)
