Big Birthday

 A new month has arrived and that means a new challenge from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This month's challenge is Anything Goes.

And here is the card I created:
Oh, I just love this little elephant!!  He's soooo adorable!!    I saw this old Sketch Saturday sketch a while ago and it just caught my attention; I so desperately wanted to give it a try.  So, while the deadline is well past, I still had to make a card with it anyway.  I already had the blue die cut stars in my stash left over from a past project.  I thought it would be fun to pair them with red patterned paper and create a fun 4th of July birthday card.  A young man in our family celebrates his birthday on the 4th, so this will be going to him.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Head on over to the LTSCB blog to see what the rest of the team has created and to get the full details of the challenge.  Then get inky and play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.

Love this card! It's so super cute and isn't it perfect when you already had the precut stars. It sure does make it a little easier when putting it all together. Super cute!!! Dorlene
