Last of the Month Play Time With My Favorite Things

TWO CARDS for the price of one! 
Yes, I love working with MFT products. 

I've had great fun playing with this elephant set and Outside the Box set, so I made a birthday card for my granddaughter.  Matched with houndstooth paper, I thought it was adorable.  You can never be too old to enjoy this cute card.

To make the butterflies look airborne, I cut a plastic lid (after I washed it) into sections to provide a bit more support and yet be fairly see through.

I think this gives you a better view of the card.

I have a second card for you! I didn't think I had enough Birthday cards, so decided on a summer scene background and lots of balloons.

Card 1
My Favorite Things Outside the Box Die-namics
My Favorite Things BB Adorable Elephants

Card 2
My Favorite Things Shadow Box
My Favorite Things Balloon Bundle stamps & Die-namics
My Favorite Things WISH Die-namics
My Favorite Things BB Adorable Elephants sentiment only used
Old Calendar picture used for background

Card 1 and 2
Copic markers
Vagabond die cut machine
