Birthday Time

 I have six projects made from the kit Nancy sent out.

Welcome to a Happy Happy Birthday 12  Kits of Occasions for the month of April ! Our wonderful host for the month is :Nancy Penir : Artful Notions. Nancy sent out this wonderful happy and colorful birthday kit! I always need birthday cards.

This card base was already embossed I just added the little girl and colored in with a bit of pink and shimmer pen.

I fussy cut the cake stamped image, added the candles and fun foam on the back and placed it on a white card base. I did add some glossy accents in a few places as well.

On the card above, all I did was add the sentiment from Papertrey Ink  and the Washi tape ...included in the birthday kit.

 I made the shaker  Papertrey Ink card  and wanted to add something to the lower right so I used my HAPPY BIRTHDAY Clear Stamps By The Stamping Village TSV0120  I fussy cut the little packages .

Ok I don't have this darling purse die from Concord & 9th but wish I did.  I've seen so many beautiful purses made with this die.
Nancy included one die cut purse and black trim. I didn't want to mess it up... only one chance. I took the already cut purse base and used this embossing folder it almost feels like read cotton.  Then I added Golden Garden Stamp & Die  from Altenew , colored in with copic markers. I am so happy with my first try . 

All the supplies and link to the rest of the amazing design team can be found HERE on the 12 Kits of Occasions blog.

Thank so much for the visit today. 
 I hope you are all doing ok .
God bless!
