This is a quick and simple birthday card I made for my stash as I have many, many birthdays coming up over July and August.
The hedgehog and bee are 2 separate Penny Black Stickeroos from their 'A bunch of love' sheet. Before I added the Stickeroos to my card, I lightly chalked the white cardstock with some Kaisercolour blue chalk for the sky and a little bit of brown for the ground - not that you can see it all that much in the photo. The sentiment is also by Penny Black from their Tiny Wishes clear set. I punched a heart using a Martha Stewart Looped Hearts edge punch ie: the heart is the leftover punchie from using the punch - then popped it up on dimensionals. I added some Kindyglitz Crystalina glitter glue to the heart, flowers and bee wings.
The pink cardstock underneath the image was diecut using a Nellie Snellen Doily flower multi-frames die and my Big Shot.
The designer paper has been in my stash for a while and is by Echo Park - Country Drive. All the cardstock layers were trimmed to an 1/8" border using my Perfect Layers Tools.
Lastly, I tied on some ribbon and attached some pink pearls to the bottom right-hand side. I added some Fray Stop to the cut ends of the ribbon.
I thought about adding some flowers or some other embellishments to the card but I always struggle with this side of cardmaking and my cards just seem to look too busy for my taste. I love what other people do - just can't seem to get to grips with it.
I think you could use this card for not only a birthday but for friendship or just to say "Hi".
