Birthday Celebration featuring Lawn Fawn

Hello crafty friends!

Here today to play along with the Lawnscaping: Birthday challenge today.
I love birthday card challenges! It's of course the one card I need the most of  and yet never seem to have enough on hand when I need them.

I have two projects I made for this challenge to share with you today.
The first being a birthday card, I made this one for my niece, she won't be turning 5 for quite some time as she just turned 4 not so long ago but better to be ahead?
The second project is wrapping paper, I made stamping images on some blank kraft wrapping paper.

So I started by cutting a 5 out of some fog cardstock  using my Cricut, measuring 4 3/4. I then traced the 5 onto some white cardstock using a pencil so I knew where to stamp my images. After stamping the images , just remember to erase your pencil marks you traced, I  colored in my images with Copic markers. I then adhered the white cardstock behind my 5. I stamped the little confetti image with some crumb cake ink for a tone on tone look. Stamped my sentiment on white cardstock and cut into a banner,  added some stickles for some sparkle.

The wrapping paper I created by starting with a large piece of plain kraft wrapping paper, which I purchased from the dollar store, I like to have this around , I think stamping on blank wrapping paper or writing someones name on it is a nice way to personalize the gift, also it looks pretty:)
 I then stamped my images , using mainly Bake Be a Cake set from Lawn Fawn but also added in some of the confetti images and party hats from the Newtons Birthday Bash set from Newtons Nook. They actually kinda looked fun just in black but I decided to color them in using some colored pencils, also adding some different colored stickles to add a little extra. Now I made my paper first and then wrapped my gift but if your gift is solid enough, you could probably wrap it first, may save some unnecessary stamping and coloring.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today, they were fun to create!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a lovely day!!:)
