Hello, bloggers today's card is all about celebrating.

This card began as an A6 hammered card blank.  Using That Special Touch mask 'spiral' I inked through the mask using fired brick distress ink.  Next I added some ribbon around the bottom of the card and adhered it inside with double sided tape.  On some white card stock I stamped out the main image three times using aged mahogany distress ink.  All three images were coloured with Promarkers.  The first image was kept complete and die cut using Spellbinders labels seventeen die.  The other two images were cut up to create decoupage for the topper.   I cut two hat pieces, one back leg and two front leg pieces as well as two arm pieces which I attached to the topper using foam tape.  Next from some red mirror board I cut out the same labels seventeen die as for the topper which is the largest die in the set.  It was then cut in half landscape to form a mat for the topper and attached using foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment straight onto the topper and then the topper was adhered to the card blank.  With some more ribbon I hand tied a bow and attached it to the ribbon strip.  Finally I added 3 red button using cosmic shimmer glue.
