Sympathy and Happy Birthday

I took the insider online class. It was the first time I ever took a card making class. It was nice to see new ways to dress up the inside of the card.
This one is masked and watercolored with pencils . 
I used my favorite sentiment: Big Day - Today from WMS.
 The flower is from Hero Arts, leaves from Papertrey Ink.

Inside of card and below is the little box
 I made to make it pop up

For this one I used my new Lawn Fawn set and some new
 Zig shimmer pens. This little crocodile wobblies if you touch him. I had to put the circle behind it so you could  not see the 
Action Wobble Springs Wobblers 

 Thanks for stoping by and I hope you have a great week!
