Happy (Birth)Day Challenge

Today's Impression Obsession DT challenge was to make a birthday card with the new stamps. I tried to find time today to make another one that specifically said birthday, but time just flew by and I really need to start my CHA packing.... so I'm posting 2 cards that are Happy Day cards instead!
The first card is perfect for St. Patricks Day, a March Birthday or for anyone Irish! I love this little shamrock tree and had soooo much fun coloring it in. I especially love the way the shading on the pot turned out. I don't use this particular color of green copic very often, but I might have to reach for it a little more now! The sentiment is also from Impression Obsession. The main images were cut with Spellbinder Dies.

The second card features a totally yummy looking glass of iced tea with heart shaped lemons... arent' they fun??? This is also from Impression Obsession and is brand new (yeah a sneek peek) and isn't released quite yet. I wanted to do a different layout for this one so I created a bunch of rectangles and fitted them together to form the card. The sentiment was cut on a Spellbinder label die. I sewed on buttons from a Basic Grey button pack to finish off the bottom rectangle.


Take a peek at the other Impression Obsession DT cards by clicking the following links: Dina, Kelli, Daniela, Laura, and Julie.


Thanks for stopping by!
