Harry Hoo-day to You!

Today is my beautiful little grand-daughter's 2nd birthday! She can't quite get her mouth around singing "Happy Birthday to you", so her version is "Harry Hoo-day to you".......she sounds so cute singing it!

I decided to try my hand at making my 1st Easel card, and it was much easier than I thought it would be. I think I'll be making more of these cards in the future. I used a new stamp set which I received as a prize from Annabelle's Stamps, it's called "Helen's Party". By the way Annabelle Stamps is celebrating a release of 4 new stamp sets, you have a chance of winning some new stamps if you go on the blog-hops.

I coloured the images with Copic Markers, and stamped the flower and balloon images a 2nd time, cut them out and put them on dimensional dots. I added some Dimensional Magic to the flower centres and Kindy Glitz to the balloon. The birthday greeting is from a Hero Arts cupcake stamp set and I've punched it out with a Stampin' Up scallop punch. All cardstock is Stampin' Up, the gingham PP is Christina Re and the pink PP is Basic Grey. The flower is embossed metal, not sure where I got it from it's been in my stash for ages, the half pearls are also from Annabelle Stamps. I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo but the Bella chipboard number and letters are glittered. Other supplies used are a Fiskars border punch, ribbon, braid, button, heart brad and embroidery floss from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm off now to see the birthday girl!
