Rainbow Birthday Snail

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-YAY!  I had made this card last weekend but didn't get an opportunity to post before we left for our week on the High Seas.  We took a Cruise and had so much fun (we always do!).  We ate like Henry the VIII (visited the midnight Buffet too many times), had cocktails (but NOT as much as Henry!), sat on the Balcony and listened to the Sea, went to Broadway type Shows, played Bingo, participated in the Scavenger Hunt and sat by the Pools. I can't tell you how nice it was to plan (and actually take) a getaway post COVID.  

I have a cute Birthday Snail to share today.  He's from the Rainbow Snail Stamp and Coordinating Die Set from Trinity Stamps.  I'm not a fan of Snails but I like this little fella, he's adorbs!

The background panel was created using the Swirling Hearts Stencil from Creative Expressions, I've used Catherine Pooler Inks to stamp the image.  The blue mat was created using another CP ink color, as I didn't have any colored card to match, I made my own!

The Circle and Frame were cut using the Diagonal Stitched Circle Dies from Pink Fresh Studio and the I've embossed the inner circle using a Birthday Embossing Folder from Cricut.  To finish, I've added holographic confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for visiting me today, I hope you have a great weekend.  Now to unpack, do the washing, love on the fur babies, telephone the Kids, go to the Grocery and REST up for our next adventure. Until next time, Happy Crafting!
