Happy Birthday Rachel!

Hello, I made this card for my Daughter's 18th Birthday! I'm also entering it into the Bugaboo Catch the Bug Challenge-anything goes!

To make the card, I used the Center Step design, you can find a great Tutorial here! I changed the card size to 4.25" wide and the side panels are 1".

This cute little elephant is a Bugaboo image called Critter Balloons - Elephant!

I copied 2 elephants, and coloured them with copics. I cut the head out of one and popped it up. The balloon was covered in crystal effects.

The sentiment is from a Totally Stampalicious set called Sweet Birthday Kids, it's a Bugaboo image that they have available in stamp form.

The stars were made with the MS star punch and a fiskars star punch. I used various cardstock to match the designer paper from K&Co. AB Lotus.

Have a Great Day!
