Toucan Party

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Birds". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I decided on a fresh, summery color scheme of yellow and green for my little toucan birthday party. One can wish, right? I mixed up some background patterns, and the pineapple background was created using a background stamp and Zig markers. The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory. I love these cute toucans! 

Stamp Sets: Toucan Party (Newton's Nook) Pineapple Background Stamp (My Favorite Things)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Garden Green (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Brights Stack (Stampin' Up), Summer Fun (Echo Park)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic, Clean Color Brush Markers (Zig)
Tools: Big Shot, Toucan Party Dies (Newton's Nook), Circles Framelits (Sizzix)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)
