Birthday Gift

I love to give home made gifts to my family and friends and they always love what I make.  So naturally I had to create something special for my friends granddaughters 1st birthday.
 I just love how sweet and fun this photo is.  I first created my background by using CTMH's watercolor and 'flicking' for a splatter effect.  So fun and such a great way to add dimension to your project.  I matted the photo with CTMH's color of the year - Sea Glass.  Love this color - it works with everything!  I also used Sea Glass glitter paper to thin cut the word 'Happy Birthday' as well.  Glitter always makes your projects fun and sparkly!
I used 3D foam tape to 'pop up' some of my hearts that I thin cut with white glitter paper and card stock.  I also used some grey enamel gems as well.
And just like that I have a super cool gift that will be a keep sake for years to come.  Love it!
All of my gifts come with a home made card as well.  I created this one in a snap by using some left over scraps from my Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack.  Don't you love the cute little elephant from the Baby Bundle stamp set?  CUTE!!!
