Animal Birthdays

On the 5th of every month, the Crafty Gals blog group has a sheduled post. This month, Carolina is the hostess. She gave us a GREAT challenge

Animal Birthdays

In Carolina's words, "Two of my sons are having birthdays this next month. Since we didn't do any b-day cards, I challenge you all to do one using an animal character and four shapes of any sort somewhere in the card plus colours red and blue. Is this too much to ask???"

Of course it isn't too much to ask, Carolina... it's such fun to create to your specifications!

Here's my card:

My "shapes" are four die cut ovals which I turned into balloons.

Here's the inside of my card:

THANKS for stopping by my blog today! I appreciate you!!!
