joyeux anniversaire!

Oh my goodness, I'm in loooove with this Poppy Stamps Ooh La La stamp set, which I got from Butterfly Reflections Ink.  The penguin can wear a beret!  I mean, come on!!!

Ooh La La Stamp Set

I made this card for the CASology challenge, where our cue word is sunshine.

I kept my card CAS by using just two images and leaving a lot of white space.  The sunshine was made by masking off the bottom portion of the card and blending in distress ink to look like the sun.  I then stamped the images, colored them with Copic markers, and die-cut them.  They're adhered with glue and foam tape.

Note: The heart that the penguin is holding is drawn in.  I wanted it to be smaller than the heart that was included in the stamp set.  Also, I don't have many stamp sentiments in French so I hand-wrote the sentiment.  The card is for my French-speaking friend for his birthday:)

Thanks for looking!
