Happy Birthday with presents

Happy Thursday friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of using presents on your birthday project.  Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it has to be for a birthday.


I used two different My Favorite Things sets to create this cute elephant with his presents and balloons.  The elephant is from BB Adorable Elephants;  the presents and balloons are from BB Beary Special Birthday.  The sentiment is from Vintage Frames by Inspired by Stamping (no longer available).  The main panel is cut with Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats Rounded Rectangles.  The grass is stamped with an old CTMH stamp and SU Old Olive ink.  I then sponged some ink over it.  The clouds are sponged with SU Bashful Blue ink and Taylored Expressions Cloud Border die.  The DSP is from MME My Girl 6x6 pad.  I paper-pieced the balloons with paper from the same pad.  The mats are SU Soft Suede CS.  The image panel and the elephant are mounted with foam tape. 

Be sure to check out all the fabulous cards by the Design Team and our surprise party guest Sherrie  over at Seize the Birthday.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
