It's a Party!

It's the Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog's 10th birthday! So, of course their challenge theme this week is "Happy Birthday!" I chose to throw them a little party with these adorable woodland animals from Hello Bluebird's "Moose & Friends" stamp set...

I am so inspired by designers who create beautifully colored scene cards, so lately, I've been practicing my skills. I love all of the designers' creations at Hello Bluebird, and who can resist their adorable animals and images!

I made a background by softly brushing Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron, then cut some hills with a Lawn Fawn die, and a banner with an Amuse Studio die. Colored the die cut images with Zig Clean Color Markers and a waterbrush. Added Wink of Stella pen, Stickles, and Nuvo Drop accents. There is a thick layer of Glossy Accents on the "Happy" balloons. Tied them with black sewing thread because I wanted really thin strings.

I just love that moose blowing out the candles (or a teeny party horn included in the stamp set should you choose), the sweet bunny, and the silly, surprised owl who's floating away!

 Happy Birthday to you, SSS Wednesday Challenge! Thanks for all of the inspiration every week!

This card is a pure delight to the eyes. I love the pastel yet colorful tone of this card and the scene is just too cute for words. That's the party I want an invitation to now! Thank you so much for joining us on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Xx Ankita
