The digi I've used to create this card, "Waddles" is available from the Creative Bug Digital Snapshots store, where you'll find a LOT of amazing digis, all designed by my sweet friend, Naomi, from Creative Bug on the Loose. Naomi and I have known one another for a couple years now, but this is the very first card I've created using one of her creations, so it's about dang time!
I colored Waddles with markers then fussy cut him. The balloons were stamped onto some textured red card then cut out, I've used nine because that's how many candles are on the cake that the adorable penguin is holding. I gave them some dimension by popping them up on foam pads, which hides the end of the twine. The design has been completed with a die cut sentiment panel and peel off sentiment.
Naomi, I REALLY hope I've done your little guy and creative talent, justice!
I'm entering the card into these challenges...
