Birthday presents

 The birthday rush begins now in my family and circle of friends.  There are several in the next 4-6 weeks.  So, I'll be making lots of birthday cards.  This one is for a little friend of my daughters'   I think it is sooooo adorable.  I've had this stamp for quite a while and haven't used it yet.  I will definitely be using it again.  Every piece is paper pieced, even that adorable little elephant.  So cute!  I added glitter pen to the stars and the pompom on top of his hat.  The first picture shows the sparkle better, then second (below) shows the little vellum banner better.  I couldn't decide which photo I preferred, so I posted both. : )

Challenges:
Raisin Boat #19--It's a girl thing
Art Impressions #130--sheer perfection (use vellum)
V's Sweet Ideas #21--"kids" theme
Your Next Stamp #10--sketch or inspiration photo (I chose the sketch)

Lacy Sunshine #88--spring colors

Crafty Catz #221--Paper Piecing
Fussy and Fancy #109--birthdays
Verve March Diva Dare--do the polka
