A Surprise Cheer

Hi all! Here is a card that I made for the Free For All Monday over at the PWCO blog.


I used the lovely A Surprise Cheer illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller for this card. I love the blob of cake and candle on his head. Too cute!


After coloring and cutting the image with a die, I inked the piece with antique linen when the piece was still in the die. The sentiment piece is made the same way. I also added Glossy Accents on the balloons.


The patterned paper is from the Fine And Dandy True Blue collection by My Mind's Eye. I love this cute collection! The sentiment is from the Half Pint Heroes set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all for today. Have a happy day, my friends! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
