Happy Birthday!

The "Lets Squash it " challenge this month is to use an embossing folder with numbers or letters and sand it. I only have one large folder with letters and its this cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder. In my stash I found an old pack of Whitewash Colourcore cardstock and chose this gorgeous pool colour.

I embossed and sanded it down to reveal the core colour and adhered it to my pool coloured card base. 

Next I stamped and coloured this cute elephant from the Heffy Doodles "Elephant of Surprise" stamp set and stuck with the balloons to the card using foam tape to add more dimension.  Lastly I added the glittery stars.  Quite a simple card but fun to make!
I shall also add this card to the SSS Wednesday Challenge "Lots of Layers"

 I am gradually recovering from my operation and managed to walk to the end of the road and back today. Slowly does it but I am missing my long walks in the countryside, hopefully soon!!

This is so pretty Sally. Love the soft pool colour that the sanding gives.
