Slimline Birthday

 Hi everyone and happy Saturday. I'm still at home recovering from surgery and with a couple of new Lawn Fawn sets hitting my letterbox, I decided to go all out and create a slimline birthday card.

It's still winter here in Australia but I always love making summery cards.

I decided to create a fun birthday party with the kids playing with a pinata, one 'naughty boy' climbing the tree, and the cake ready to go. 

We then go down to the sand where there is a crab popping out to say hi.

Then under the water there is another birthday party happening and the octopus is very happy with his gifts so far.

There is a combination of new and old on this card. The crab, seashell, palm trees, and starfish are from the 'Life is Good' set (which I bought many years ago).
The new 'Tiny Birthday Friends' set was used for the top party scene.
The underwater scene used 'Ocean Shell-fies' and 'Christmas Fishes'. 
The sentiment is from 'Hay There'.
I also used a couple of stencils - 'Clouds', and 'Ocean Waves'. The grass was created using the 'Grassy Border' die.

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Lawn Fawn (Summertime Fun), Alphabet Challenge (Use 'Happy' in your sentiment), Challenge up your Life (Beach Time), Country View Crafts (Use a Stencil or Two), Crafter's Cafe (Layer it Up), Dies R Us (Anything Goes with a brand they sell), Craft Rocket Challenges (Summer), Watercooler Wednesdays (Any Occasion), Inspiration Station (Photo Below)
