Been Busy In The Craft Room

Here are just some birthday cards I have put together in the past few days.
With a few strips of colorful papers and a heart punch makes cute candles. I have seen a few different cards done like this before, so I thought I would try it. Glad I did.
The next card was done using the ornaments4Christmas Club die set from to make a stand up card. Yes, the balloons were done with an ornament die.
The balloon strings were done with the spiral die from Sizzix Triplits Butterfly die set.
I have seen a few Lego cards, so I wanted to try it, too, but I don't have any small circle dies or punches. So, for this card...
it took some thinking, long and hard thinking. What I ended up with was some small circle cut outs provided by a die that you wouldn't expect.
Tim Holtz On The Edge Steampunk die, the circle in the middle of the gear to the left. 
That's the one. It was just the right size. With these circles, I found the best sizes for the Legos were 3/4in. x 3/4in. and 3/4in. x 1 3/4in.
Inking around the edges made the circles pop just right.
Thank you for reading.
