Lil’ Inker Designs 3rd Birthday Celebration Hop ~

Hi there!  Welcome to a super fun birthday hop for the fabulous Lil’ Inker Designs!  You should’ve arrived here from Alicia’s blog…if not, bop on back to Laura’s to get started off right!  LID is 3!!  As part of the festivities, the DT have created some fun birthday cards, tags and projects based on the gorgeous graphic below.

I decided to use the Mini Party Die set to create a birthday card for this celebration based on the balloons.
lid turns 3 
All the papers are from the Echo Park Summer Days.  I love using the negative of a die cut and it’s just fantastic that the Stitched Mats: Circles leaves a stitched detail behind.  Pure genius, I tell ya!  The 3 is supposed to be crooked, like the balloons are carrying it away…hope that came across.  The sentiment is from the new Snarky Sentiments which we are previewing today.  Because of this little celebration, it’s on sale for $10!

The challenge for you, should you choose to accept, is to create a card, tag or project using the graphic as inspiration, use the graphic and talk about how it inspired you in your post, and link directly to your birthday post via the linky tool on Laura’s blog.  LID goodies don’t have to be used exclusively, but they must be part of the creation!  Lots of good prizes with this one including a $50 gift certificate, so go get crafty!! 
You should hop along to Amy’s blog now!  Have a super day!  Thanks for stopping by!
