Happy Birthday

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Anne Harmon our challenge hostess for March continues to bring us fun challenges.

One of the special days in March is St Patrick's Day which is the 17th March, so our challenge this week is to create a card using the color green!

I found this fun designer paper during a recent shopping trip with friends and as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for this challenge. As you can see I have created a Pop Up Card using the Beach Chair Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs

I used Poppy the Owl to decorate my card along with the Paris Edges and Agatha Edges die sets which I used at the bottom and top of my card. I also added balloons so they mimicked the balloons on the background paper behind the chair.

Here is a side on view of my card so you can see the pop up portion of my card a little better.

And finally the front of my card. I added more balloons and the word Happy ..... you need to open the card to see birthday.
