Happy 6th Birthday

Wow, hard to believe it is already September. Even harder to believe, my second to youngest grandson is already 6. He was so excited, he turned 6 on the first day of 1st grade. (Even tho he said he wanted to go back to kindergarten because they had more toys there!)
I am entering this in the Our Daily Bread Stamps Shining the light challenge 74, which was to use dots or stripes. There are really lots of dots on this ! I really had some fun with this card.
The DP is from a ColorBok Mat stack-Friendly Forest-I bought a while back and just 'un-earthed' when I was organizing. The card base is SU Garden green. I used 2 of the DP for the background, the bottom one had the animals aready on it. I stamped the tree trunk and top (Hampton Arts Clear-Trees) on 2 more of the DPs and cut them out. I free hand cut the 6. The Bunny and frog under the tree are cut from the corners of 2 papers and mounted on foam dots. The ballons (hero Arts Birthday Messages clear) are stamped with SU inks and hand cut. Front 3 are mounted with foam dots. The little bird in the tree is also from the Trees stamp set. I added some googly eyes to some of the critters and stickles to others. I also added stickles to the birds wing, as well as the frog and bunny.

I stamped a number of the sentiments from the Messages set on the inside, as well as a ballon. The 2 trees are a Verve stamp and a Clear Dollar stamp I stamped on the DP and cut out. The hedgehop is part of the red DP.
