Happy Birthday

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hello my crafty friends!
I hope you are having a great week and ready for the weekend to begin?! Yes, another weekend~they sure do come and go quick, ha?
We are going to have our hands full with two of our granddaughters who will be staying with us this weekend :) We have tickets to take them to Thomas the Train, sponsored by the North Shore Scenic Railroad, lunch, the park and top it off by taking them to the movie. I am pretty sure we will be exhausted when they go home on Sunday, but it will be FUN!

Today, I am sharing a couple of cute birthday cards for Arya's little friends who have birthdays coming up. I used this cute little stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps and paired it up with some fun dies/stamps from Jaded Blossom as well.

I started with Jaded Blossoms Scallop Rectangle Dies 2 for the base. The base layer is the Rectangle Dies 1 and then followed with another Scallop panel.
I stamped this adorable image from Joy Clair Stamps~Hoppy Birthday stamp set onto that panel and colored it with copics. I added a fun birthday hat that is created with Jaded Blossoms Birthday Dies.
I stamped the sentiment with Jaded Blossoms Turtley Rad stamp set onto a Mini Tag Dies 2 and finished with a little bow using ribbon from my stash.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Seize the Birthday Challenge-Anything Goes
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) Simon Says Wed Challenge-Let's Go Wild
4.) Joy Clair August Challenge-Inspiration Board
(chose the green and red tones from the inspiration photo)
