Speedy Fox and Friends and Crazy 4 Challenges

The challenge this week at Mark's Finest Papers Speedy the Fox and Friends challenge is birthday cards and at Crazy 4 Challenges they want to see children's birthday cards. I designed some CAS kid's cards that a child could make or an adult could make for a child for the next classes I am teaching at our local JoAnn Fabric and Crafts store and this is one of them. (You can sign up for half price on Feb 4th at the store or by calling the Wausau store.)

I started with a piece of brown Core'dinations paper that was pink on the other side. The elephant was embossed using a large Cuttlebug folder but cutting the paper down to fit an A2 card. I distressed the elephant to bring out the pink from the other side. I cut the balloons with a small Sizzix diecut and popped them up with mounting tape.
