Diesel's Birthday Card

Hello, folks!
Today I wanted to share the card I made for Diesel's birthday "pawty" a little while back on September 3rd.  Though it was sad that he wasn't there with us, I thought it was a nice celebration of the life he lived.  We love and miss you so much, Diesel!

I tried to make this card extra cute for him.  I wanted to go with the blue and orange because they're the colours of his toy ball that he really loved. :o)

When making this card, I realized that I rarely use most of my border punches anymore.  I tend to reach for dies rather than punches nowadays.  But the one border punch that I still get plenty of use out of is my Martha Stewart grass border punch -- love that thing!  It's so great for making little scenes like this.  I love, love those cute stickers from K & Company -- when I saw them on sale [long ago], I went crazy-jazz-hands and bought 4 packs.  Tell me I'm not the only one who does this! ;o)  I'm not a hoarder, though -- I've actually used most of the stickers up.  The banner die and coordinating stamps are from Wplus9's Basic Banners, and the super-cute frame is from Sizzix's Frame, Scallop Rectangle die set.

Till next time!
