Have an Amazing Birthday!

I wanted to do a test, it's a personal test.. i wanted to see if this Tiddly Inks Image is popular?  Don't you think she is just so cute...I am talking about Minnie...that's her name, she's got these adorable glasses and such a happy face!  I've paired her with Melissa Birthday Bear also from Tiddly Inks!

You can find Minnie here.
You can find Melissa Birthday bear here.

I've made a twisted Easel card, super easy..just score the top of a card in a diagonal.  (Fold at the top, diagonal from top right down to left bottom)
If you take a look at the original images you will see that Minnie is holding a flower, i just cut the flower off, so it looks like she is putting her arm around Birthday bear.  What i did to birthday bear is flip him horizontally...super easy with digis.. Then i enlarged the image to make bigger balloons, cropped them and printed them off and put them behind Birthday bears balloons.  This makes such a sweet combination.   To make the balloons look transparent, i just pretended that i could see the background balloons in each grouping and colored them in like the line was there..using the lightest color.  There are videos on you tube talking about coloring balloons.

Now for the die info...this super circle die has gotten a bad rap...it doesn't seem to be so popular, but it's fantastic.  It is a Marianne Creatables LR0152 Circlets Circle die (an older one).  I would suggest that you check out Dutch Paper Crafts for this die because they really do have the best prices/shipping. (you will have to email "sales" to find out if it is in stock)
