Happy Bird-day 2 Ewe!

Hello, Friends!

Happy Birthday to Paper Smooches!  Yesterday, I told you it was their fourth anniversary.  I like to think of it as their birthday, so today I have a birthday card for them.  I have had this card in mind for a long time and now seemed like the perfect time to bring it to life.  I love their super cute, whimsical style, although they also have some "serious" styles of stamps as well.  As I also said yesterday, they also have fabulous sentiment stamps in all kinds of great fonts.  They have dies that correspond with their stamps, which I've used on my card, but they also have dies that stand alone, like an adorable grocery cart, tags, words, and a lot more.  If you've never checked out Paper Smooches products, I highly encourage you to do so right away. 

All of the stamps on today's card are from Paper Smooches.  "Happy Bird-day" was one of the sentiments that came in the set with the bird stamp in the cute party hat.  "2 Ewe" with literally two ewes was my idea, though.  I thought it was a fun play on words instead of using "to you" using two lambs or "2 ewe" instead.  To make it all come to life, I used one of Paper Smooches alphabet sets, also super cute, to stamp all the words.   This made everything match.  I think the bright colors, the entertaining animals, and the playful font all come together to make a very happy birthday card in honor of Paper Smooches and for the person who will ultimately receive it in the mail!

Paper Smooches Challenge Blog has the theme "Anything Goes" this week.  I am entering my birthday card in this challenge.


Seize the Birthday is also having an "Anything Goes" challenge.  I am entering my card there, as well.

Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge is H is for...  My letter "H" is for "happy."  There's Happy Bird-day, happy colors, and happy animals. 

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is All Things Bright and Beautiful.  There is a "Happy Birdday" card in the design team samples with a brightly colored fun bird like mine, so I think my card qualifies to enter as well. 
I hope you enjoy this card and my play on words.

Happy Stamping!
