Birthday Hugs-CDD daily

Hi fellow crafters..
I'm here to share a cute Birthday themed card as my design team project for Craftin Desert Diva's using the bookworm from the Beyond Measure stamp set which is the stamp set I'm showcasing today and some of the dies from both Fancy Frames, Mix it up and Pocket Pieces Hi die set.

Here is what I created: 
I used some of my favorite papers to go with this card..
I came up with the card idea when my youngest son told me he felt like a nerd asking for books for Christmas this year :)  He really wanted the hard cover set of the Lord of the Rings..

I used the fancy frames dies to cut a frame out of the front of the card, then I was able to use the cut out to add my stamp image to and I added that to the inside of my card :)

Here you can see the tabs I added, plus my cut out needed a little something, so used the bigger fancy frames dies, to create the scalloped edge :)

The stamps I used to create my card:

The poinsettia digital stamp comes with candles, but I edited the image where I was able to delete the candles and just use the flower..

I decided to use the Busy Bee's stamp set, lots of fussy cutting (my favorite) and made a fun card for my "honey"..
Here is what I created:

Can you tell one of my favorite colors is purple? :)
I had way too much fun playing with these stamps and I always have to have that fun whimsy scene on my cards, scrapbook layouts etc..  
I did a lot of layering with the stamps, then fussy cut it all in one piece, adding the bee separately..
All of the images are adhered to my card base using foam tape, that is where and why you see a shadow in the photo :)
my after thought was the honey stick with the dripping honey on it, which I actually ended up liking a lot..  I cut that from the dripping heart and just used the honey part :)

I used several different tones on yellow and light tans to create the honey in the jars, then added some dots using a white gel pen and a brown fine tip marker..

and finally the cute little queen bee ( kind of like myself..LOL).. 
Had to have her hovering over and keeping keeping an eye out..LOL
