Happy Birthday Maya

Hi Everyone and it's Friday.  The weather is incredible, 28 in celsius and about 86 you don't have to convert either way.  And any way you look at it, it's pretty nice LOL.

The card I am sharing today is for Maya who turns 1 in a couple of weeks.  Maya is Lloyd's granddaughter and they  live in Japan and  stay in touch through Skype.  This is  great as Lloyd can see Maya as she learns new things and grows and she gets to know her grandpa.

This card was so much fun to make as it could be whimsical and fit for a princess - hence the crown and the shimmery letters.

Stamps: Animal Stories, Enjoy Every Moment

Paper: Whisper White, Regal Rose, Real Red, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette

Ink: Basic Grey, Basic Black

Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Circle Punch, Light Blue and Dazzling Diamond Stamping Glitter, Cricut Basic Shapes, Butterfly Embosslit Folder, Black Marker, Champagne Glitter

1. The card base is Whisper White and the dimensions are 51/2 x 41/4.

2. The top note was cut using the pink pirouette CS and attached to the Regal Rose layer.

3. The elephant is stamped using basic grey, adding eyelashes with the black marker and dazzling diamond to her spot.

4. The ball is made with the circle punch, stamped with circles from Enjoy Every Moment stamp set and then the blue glitter added.

5. The elephant and ball were layered on a piece of whisper white with the small butterfly cut from the so saffron attached to her trunk.

6. The crown and the letters were cut with the cricut from whisper white and sponged with champagne shimmer ink

So that's it for today, and I hope you enjoy.
Until next time.....
