Gotta love a good pun... I needed a few boy birthday cards, and this stamp and greeting from Paper Smooches fit the bill.

This card started out with a water-colored image, and I jazzed it up a bit with some gold glitter sparkle glue on the ground and a star on top of the groundhog's party hat. I die cut the image and added it to a card base that was partway covered with green patterned card. I added a strip of May Arts Gold Glittered Ribbon and then stamped up the sentiment in parts.

I am usually "scared" to add glitter to my projects, but the challenge at Sparkle & Shine: 25 really inspired me. I'm also entering this into the Paper Smooches Monthly Challenge: Birthdays.

Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock
Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies Stamp Set
Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Squares
Lil' Inker Designs Mini Party Die Set
