Happy Birthday!!!!!

It seems like I am keeping with my theme of making Birthday Cards. For the New Papercrafting World Challenge, we are sponsoring a birthday challenge for you.

I used the adorable dog from the Jules and Jack cutting file as my main star. These dogs are so cute and I thought Jules would look great holding some birthday balloons. I cut Jules on Make the Cut. I used textured brown and cream cardstock. I sanded all the cardstock and I embossed the cream parts with my cuttlebug and sanded that a little also. I wanted to choose some paper that had a bright fun birthday party vibe to them.

I think this Echo Park Walk in the Park 6 x 6 paper pad has some great patterns in it. Each piece is double sided giving you even more choices! I cut some balloons out of some of the other patterns and and tied them together with a floss string and put it in Jules' paw. Every well trained dog knows it's proper to bring balloons to a birthday party. This time I have stamped Jules' eyes with a stamp set from Peachy keen. I'm still trying to get the hang of the eyes when I'm paper piecing. My final embellishment was to add a little rhinestone to her collar so she would look fancy at the party.

When it came time to choose files to use for this challenge, it was hard, Melin has so many great ones. I really encourage you to and find a feebie or 2 and join us in the challenge.
