Our Little Minion Turns 1

I had a ball creating this little card for our grand-daughter who celebrated her 1st birthday this week! From the time she was just a few months old, she has loved the minions from Despicable Me!  During an occasional fussy spell, her parents soon discovered if they pulled up a minion clip on YouTube and showed it to her, she immediately was mesmerized and...walah...end of discontent!  She still gets a big smile when she sees a minion image or toy!

So, it was no surprise when I heard her birthday theme was minions.  I checked out Pinterest for ideas
and was inspired by donidoodle's post HERE.  I used 2 MFT Die-Namics - Rounded Banner STAX and Grass Border - for the body and hair.  Here's a photo of the tools I used.  I hand drew the balloon string using a gray Copic multi-liner pen.  The diagonal striped background is by MFT and was stamped twice using my MISTI.  I struggle with getting an even ink coverage when I stamp once.  This use of the MISTI was probably the one thing that really sold me on the tool!  The wishing die and sentiment are by Simon Says Stamp.

Here are some birthday photos that this proud grammie has to share...
