A little birthday koala

I just love this koala from Whipper Snapper. I think I actually squealed out loud when I first saw him at the store and he begged me to take him home with me.

This was a quick card I whipped up for a birthday party my daughter will be going to this weekend. I decided to keep it pretty simple and used the same sketch that I used for this card.

The base is Certainly Celery, the blue pattern is from SU's "Jersey Shore" collection and the yellow pattern is from Cosmo Cricket. Before I adhered everything together, I had my card layed out and thought that the white background on my main image was a little too much, so I sponged the edges with Certainly Celery ink to soften it up a bit.To finish it off, I added a little blue ribbon and a sentiment on one of my new Nestabilities shapes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Until tomorrow...

Oh gosh, your card is so adorable, Mackenzie. I love whipper snapper too. . .I have a few of them. I haven't used them for such a long time but I think I just may have to use them after looking at our card. Wow, the layout is fabulous and you did such a fabulous job coloring the image!!
