Happy Birthday

Hooray it's Friday!!! Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend? It's Octoberfest here in Cincinnati (as I'm sure it is elsewhere too) so I'm sure we'll be partaking in the festivities in one way or another. My friend told me the event kicks off at noon today with a dog race downtown...Dachshunds dressed up as hot dogs running across the square. How cute is that!!! But I have a question for you. Why is a festival called Octoberfest held in September???? Things that make you go Hmmmm... card has nothing to do with Octoberfest. Instead I have a sweet birthday card to share  that I made using Pure Innocence Birthday Girl from My Favorite Things.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Razzle Berry and another layer of Sweet Tooth.

I stamped Pure Innocence Birthday Girl with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then coloured her with copic markers. I paper pieced her skirt with polka dot paper from the Echo Park Here & Now collection, then I fussy cut around her. I used the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics to cut out the Pink Lemonade rectangle and adhered the girl with foam tape. The layout is Mojo311 (minus the bow because it just didn't work since I flipped the sketch).

For the horizontal strip I cut a piece of Berrylicious card stock to size then stamped it with Border It - Mod Borders using Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink. I used the Scallop Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the Lemon Drop scallop and the Rounded Banner Trio Die-namics to cut out the Razzle Berry half circle. I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

On the inside I stamped the girl again with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink then added another sentiment from Pure Innocence Birthday Girl.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Here are the supplies I used:
