Happy Birthday Purple Onion Designs!!

It is Purple Onion Designs anniversary and to celebrate Michele is offering 25% off all stamps through August 16.

And to go along with the birthday theme I created a woodland creature birthday card. I started out by watercoloring the background using Ranger Distress ink in Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn . While it dried I stamped the party animals Sunny (bird), Joey (raccoon), Bubbly (bear with sparkler removed), Charlotte (mouse), Milly (hedgehog), the banner from the Wagon stamp and Balloon (from the Balloon, Party Hat and Kite set), colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out. After diecutting the watercolored piece with a stitched rectangle die, I stamped the sentiment from the Journey Sentiment set plus the mouse and balloon so I would not have to fussy cut out the balloon string and the mouse tail. I attached the images using a combo of glue and foam tape for dimension.
