Happy Birthday!


I'm channelling two of Laura Bassen's recent cards today. See them here and here. I cut the largest Simon Says Stamp dot circles die a couple of times and then used the outline portion to help me position my intersecting lines of dots. Each dot is coloured with copics and popped up for a little dimension. I finished with a bold W+9 happy die and a stamped 'birthday'.

Then I made another one for our nephew's 5th birthday, using a Papertrey die for the 5.
