Hello Friends, We have a fun Topping option for the next two weeks over at Seize the Birthday! Out topping is to add felt to your card and or project. This was a first time I have ever cut felt with a die cut before and I am in love with how well it worked with my MFT dies and my Sizzix machine. I have had this felt in my cabinet for years, (NBUS) and thrilled that I didn’t have to run out and get any. Cause you know…you run to the craft store for one thing and you come out with TEN! LOL Just look at those balloons …aren’t they super cute? As I warned you, I can’t get over my crush on these NEW Adorable Elephants from MFT. Swoon! This little guy was again colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils. The background heart cover plate and the grass is also MFT. The sentiment is part of the elephant stamp set as well. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders and the Stitched circle is SU.
I hope you will consider coming on over to Seize the Birthday to see what my fantastic teammates and Guest have done with their felt, and while you are there you will have a go at it yourself!
Also, you have to run on over to Darnell’s Blog and see what this fantastic, crafty and sweet of a lady has done with Bubble Wrap! Amazing! Take care, Nanc’

Why oh why do I forget about this challenge, Nancy? I make so many birthday cards and never enter them. I’m trying to do better. I love that little elephant standing in the grass with his cute felt balloons. It’ such a darling card.

I love how the hearts are hidden on your background, until you look closer. Then how you repeated the balloons with the heart. Sweet.

Love that cute elephant with the felt balloons. The hearts in the background look great with the heart balloons.

So many fun elements (including the elephant!) to look at on this card, Nancy! Love the die you used for the background, the layered grass, and of course your fabulous felt balloons!

I don’t blame you for swooning over those ellies, Nance! They are so adorable and they look especially adorable holding your sweet felt heart balloons! The paper and embossing and grass and sediment … it’s all so cohesive and amazing!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10!! Hugs, Darnell
