4CC #410 Birthday Twist

Good Morning!
It's Thursday again.  
They seem to come around awfully fast these days!

Well, it's not a bad thing.  
For one, it's time for a new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Leanne is our hostess this week!  Yay!
She's hosting a birthday twist.
I've been wanting to use these Gerda Steiner stamp sets for a long time.  I just recently purchased the Hero Arts Tropical Foilage background stamp to go along with a jungle theme so I paired it with the stamps and some tropical leaf dies from Waffle Flower.  I actually cut out the middle of the background with a stitched oval die and then popped up the background around it with craft foam.  I wanted the critters to look like they were peering out of the jungle leaves.

You can tell better in this next photo:
So make sure and stop by the Hen House and check out all my teamies' birthday projects.  Lots of celebrating going on!  Then come play along with us, either in our never ending "anything goes" challenge or do the birthday twist!  You have until Wednesday, July 11th at Noon, MST.

STAMPS: Go Wild and Party Animals (Gerda Steiner).

Wow! What an absolute riot of fun! The leafy jungle background is great, especially the way you've created such dimension in it. The critters are plainly adorable and look ready to party hard. Love it! Thanks for sharing in the 400th Challenge celebration at The Paper Players.
