Welcome to another Sparkling Saturday! A friend recently requested I make a birthday card for her to send to her best friend overseas, so I wanted to make something that was cheerful and fun. She told me that her friend's favorite color was orange, so therefore I chose some colors that I thought would go well with orange.
I started out with a piece of white cardstock that I die cut using Mama Elephant Femme Frames. I also die cut a circle on the left side to turn it into a balloon. The adorable and cute animals from the Mama Elephant Carnival Cupcake set were then colored using Copics and Spectrum Noirs alcohol markers. Following, I stamped and colored a bunny from The Greeting Farm Lucky Bunnies stamp set and fussy cut it out. Using foam squares, I set it on the card and drew a string connecting the bunny's paw to the balloon.
The background wasn't looking quite festive enough, so I stamped some loose confetti all around the card using various inks. For my shaker portion, I put a piece of acetate behind the balloon and then I adhered a piece of fun foam to the back of this pane. After adding in some sequins (looking back, I should have added even more!) I popped it up onto a turquoise piece that I die cut using the same ME Femme Frame set. I adhered this onto an orange side folding A2 card base and it was finished!
PS: Since I didn't have orange sequins, I used an orange Sharpie to color in the PPP Sparkling Clear sequins!
I hope you enjoyed. I'm entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes!
