Polka Doodles #25, Paper Players #4 & Our Creative Corner Challenges

 


This card was created with three challenges in mind: Polka Doodles challenge to make a Boy's Birthday card; Paper Players challenge to make an easel card and Our Creative Corner's colors of blue and green.

I had been wanting to make a circular easel card, but I decided to place it on a standard size background piece of cardstock so it combines the best of those two ideas. The stamps are from a cute set for boys I own from Raisin Boat (thanks Donna!) I stamped in blue on white cs and cut out.

 


I used some dinosaur brads for accents and to hold the easel up. The inside has another stamped dinosaur and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same set. Of course I used nesties to cut the scalloped circles and added dots in the scallops as a finishing touch.

Stamping smiles, Karen
