Hogs and Kisses Birthday - CYCI #130

Of all the kinds of cards that I make, birthday cards are what I need most.  So when I saw that the Can You Case It challenge for this week was to make a birthday card, I was all over that.  I had just bought a DCWV patterned paper pack from Joann's that was birthday themed.  As I was looking through the pack, I couldn't decide which paper to use, to I just used one of each color, and created my own background.  I cut half inch strips of each sheet, and then glued them down to a card front, cutting off the overhang.  I really wanted that paper piecing piece to take center stage, so I decided to make a small focal point in the bottom right of the card.  I used a few banner die cuts, and a really cute pig from the SSS Birthday Farm Animals stamp set.  The pig got a little lost on the background, so I added a vellum circle underneath, and a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Green Acres stamp set to complete the focal point.  To finish off the card, I used my clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents on the balloon, along with a few Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles.

I'm sure you could use another birthday card in your stash, so I hope you will come play along with us on the CYCI challenge this week!

Have a good day.
