I was lucky enough to get to play with Tiny Celebrate and came up with this lil' trio of cards:

When I saw the paisley template, I had to make an adorable lil' bird. I just trimmed down one paisley cut for a wing and cut a corner of a piece of paper for the beak, and tada...just too cute!

I love that the cloud looking template can also double for the top of an ice cream cone...I used a couple additional templates (Delight 1 & 2) for the background to add a little extra whimsical color. I love how the ice cream cone turned out!

The tiny templates are addicting, you just don't want to stop tracing! Especially when there are balloon images! 

Thank you so much for stopping and visiting! Please be sure to leave a comment to be entered to win and then hop over to Christina's amazing blog!
