Toddler Birthday Card

Good Monday morning to all of you! I wanted to share this card that I made for our neighbor's little one. Hardly seems like a year has gone by already. I saw a different version of this card a few weeks ago by Linda Duke and since my grandbabies will be 1 in May and June, my daughter and I fell in love with this set she used from Crafty Secrets and decided we had to have it. There are many possibilities with this set and it's perfect for a little one. My DP is from "Flowers for You" from SU and I colored her with my Copic markers. The sentiment in the corner is from SU's "Wow Flowers" and I added a half pearl to it. I popped up my little balloons on dimensionals. The background is "airbrushed" using SU's ""Color "Spritzer Tool." It's not as smooth as using the airbrushing system from Copic, but it worked for this card. Thanks for taking a look and I hope you all have a wonderful Monday. Today is HM's new challenge for this week, so I'm on my way over there to see what's in store for us. Hugs,

Adorable card Karen! Love the image. Soooo what did you think of this week's HM challenge? This will be a real challenge for me if I do it. Not sure I can do masculine with a mouse....LOL! Maybe with a Gruffie.
