I told you all I had a LOT of birthdays to prepare for. You'll be seeing a bunch more over the next few months. For some reason, I always wait until the last minute to create these cards. I did this one on the fly Saturday. My little guy needed it for a party on Sunday. 

It's a little easier to create on the fly when you have a great sketch to follow. I was using the adorable puppy from Cupcake Cutie by MFT, so I went with this week's Wed. Stamp Club sketch. 

I wasn't going to color the pup, so I stamped him on a kraft circle die cut from Blueprints 3 Die-namics. After I pieced up the balloon, I did decide to add in a little shading with my Copics. I used my W3 and W7 markers to add a bit of shading to ground the puppy. 

The sentiment included in the stamp set was a bit too girly of a font for a boy birthday card. I went "shopping" in my stash, and I came across Gift Card Greetings II. bingo! It included the perfect sized sentiment to fit my strip. I stamped it in Chocolate Brown ink. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I always love when you leave some kind words.
