Sarai: Huggabugg Birthday

Here's a sweet yellow and pink card I made for 
my grand niece who recently turned 1. I used 
Stamping Bella's "cuppycake with a Huggabugg on top!"

I've been experimenting with various water colour techniques. 
(with limited success, LOL!!) I started with water coloured paper 
and used Hibiscus Burst and Harvest Gold inks to create a 'smooshed' background panel
I cut an oval from the center of the card front to use 
for the main focal panel. The remainder of the front was 
stamped with Birthday Style confetti using Hibiscus Burst 
and Harvest Gold over the smooshed background.

The oval piece was mounted onto a double mat of 
Harvest Gold and Hibicus Burst. 
Huggabug and cupcake images were stamped, 
coloured with copics and fussy cut so it could be 
attached to the main focal panel.  
The base of the cupcake was paper pierced using 
a striped paper from my scrap bin.
The sentiment (Stylish Sentiments: Birthday)  
was stamped with black ink.

Confetti and Swags:
Birthday Style
Big Birthday Wishes & Polka Dot Alphabet
