1/4 Henry Says It's your Birthday, Stampin' Up Occasions Mini

Good Evening Friends!  

I am so in LOVE with cute little Henry and today he's celebrating a birthday!  Hooray! Personally, I'm celebrating that this little buddy is FINALLY available for purchase!  I know several of my friends have been waiting!  (You know who you are, wink wink).

This card is SO bright and cheery, yet it was SO easy to make!

This elephant never forgets birthdays or Christmas! Stamps include banners or ornaments to hang from his trunk, and hats to suit any occasion.
Wood Mount, Item 128090, $29.95
Clear Mount, Item 128093, $21.95 

So first, some measurements for this project:

Base Layer: Marina Mist 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Layer 2: Whisper white 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: Marina Mist 5 1/4" 1 3/8", scalloped trim border punch, Item 118402
Layer 4: Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper 5 1/4" x 1
Layer 5: Marina Mist 3 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Layer 6: Whisper white 3 3/8" x 2 3/8
Layer 7: Marina mist scrap for the Hooray!

I inked up with the coordinating lucky limeade, melon mambo and marina mist markers for the chickadees and the sentiment.  I used stazon ink to stamp the main image and colored Henry with an aqua painter and a basic grey marker.  Just a little watercolor will do!  He's so darn cute!! 

This card was created for the Creative Crew Challenge over on Split Coast Stampers this month.  You can see the post at this link.

Here is the challenge:

CCREW0113DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- DSP/Color Focus: We have an embarrassment of riches of DSP in the Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog. Choose YOUR favorite DSP from either catalog, and convince the rest of us to love it too!

Have a wonderful evening!
