Sending Love on Your Birthday

Got a chance to play with this adorable set again along with some other new craft goodies I recently got and joining the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of using Stencil along with Seize your Birthday of "Anything Goes". and Word Art Wednesday #184
Here is my card: 
Love this adorable stamp set called: Lila's Heart from the SSS Falling For You collection and wanted to use my distress inks once again to create this background. Afterward, used the Falling Hearts stencil along with white embossing paste. Started with the Blueprints 20 to get a white scallop base and than went on to create this frame.

Frame was created by first stamping Tiny Alphabet background stamp using white pigment ink and black licorice card stock which was cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies by Simon Says Stamp which I love. Added foam mount to pop it up. 

Colored this adorable girl along with the balloons using Copic Markers but for her dress, I used distress ink to try and match with the background created and also popped her up using foam mount. Added the sentiments from the same stamp set along with "Happy Birthday" from the stamp set: Circle Sayings also from the SSS Falling For You collection.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge sites, go check them out to see all the wonder ideas and inspiration.
