MFT July Release Countdown--Day 3

It's Day 3 of My Favorite Things July Release Countdown!

This month, there are TWO Pure Innocence images to choose from with
celebratory themes. The first stamp is appropriately called Happy 
Birthday to You and features a little cutie with a huge present.

I masked off a rectangle and ink distressed several colors of Distress inks, then
spattered with water. The little girl was colored with Copics and I added striped
and dotted details with a white Gelly roll pen.

The banners were cut from patterned papers and criss crossed across the card.
I popped up the girl with dimensional adhesive and grounded her with an oval
shadow. I stamped the fun sentiment and finished off the card with enamel dots.

The second image is called Happy Cake Day. The little girl was stamped, colored
with Copics, then cut with the matching Die-namics.

The watermelon piece was made from the rectangle element in Blueprints 22
that was ink distressed, and spattered with water. I removed some of the spots 
and replaced them with Steel Grey "seeds".
I adhered the piece to a Kraft card base, popped up the little girl, and white
embossed the sentiment. Rounding off the bottom corners finished off the card.
