Happy Birthday Card

This card originally started out as a PK design challenge card, that was nothing like this.  I tried so many different cuts and colors and didn't like the way anything looked.  Then I decided to try this little Lion from Life's a Party and I loved it.  I then pulled out some stock red paper for the base and some stripped paper from DCWV Stack 7.  The grass was cut I think from Create a Critter, but it was in my stash, so I'm not quite sure.  When I cut something and don't use it for that project I save it and sometimes use it for another project.  The balloon buttons are from JoAnns and Fabulous Finds, they have the cutest buttons!  I used red, blue and green bakers twine to match the balloons.

The face is stamped using PK Cute and Cuddly Face and I put him on an Action Wobble.  I just love how cute he turned out.  I used chalk on the cheeks and glossy accents on the eyes and nose.

I am entering this in the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge and
the Wobble Wednesday Challenge
