A Birthday Full of Fun

Here is a fun card I made with two Bugaboo images, the Balloon Topper and the Birthday Pup Set.

I used a pierced die cut my balloon image out of, then using the marker to create faux stitches.  I used a cotton ball and some chalk to color the background so it wouldn't be stark white.  The sentiment was inked with CTMH Exclusive Inks in Black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I used SCAL 4 to create my die cut, that I uploaded into DS.  This particular image I used a shadow of .10, but I think .8 is large enough.  The .1 seems to leave too much white space.  I attached the little guy with an action wobble, the kiddies love them.

Using the CTMH Flower Market background stamps, stamped the pattern in Versa Mark Ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  This allowed me to color my images with ink to match my patterned paper.
