Stacked Animals

Welcome to my second post of the day! I wanted to play along with Monday Muse before their challenge closes tomorrow. I love the inspirational card this week made by Therese Calvird!

How cute is that?! I drew inspiration from the stacked animals and pulled out my Fox & Friends stamp set. I made my card bright and colourful using the colour combo from Color Throwdown and used an older Freshly Made sketch as a guide.

I think these colours are perfect for a kid's birthday card! Here's what I came up with:

Isn't it fun? Curious where the little bird stamp came from? It's from the adorable stamp set called "Moving Forward". I thought it was the perfect touch to finish off the stack of animals. I love this colour combo! The patterned designer paper adds to the funness (if that's a word!) of this card. I embellished the card with Old Olive satin ribbon and small rhinestones on the ends of the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by! I plan on taking a break from my blog for the rest of the weekend, so stay tuned for a new post on Tuesday!
