Leaping for Leap Day at BBTB2

Hi everyone! LB is our hostess this week at BBTB2 and she took advantage of the fact that today is Leap Day and chose it for the challenge for the week.

I ended up making a birthday card for my project. I know I won't have much use for it after tomorrow, but I may take it to work and see if anyone needs it.

I used a bunch of different image sets for this card. Nursery Rhyme for the pig, Cake Basics for the Happy Birthday, Paper Lace for the diamond background, From My Kitchen for the cake and, last but not least, Designer's Calendar for the "leap year".

I tried to make it pretty gender neutral because I don't have anyone specific to give it to. I used some Glossy Accents on the red pieces and some Wink of Stella on the pig. I hope you will all create your own leaping project and come join us for a challenge that won't come around often.


  1. The glossy accents really make your card pop. I love the diamond background on your cute and fun card.

  2. Great card Lynn!! I have a friend that says he is 12 because he was born on the 29th!!! Love the pig leaping over the cake!! :)

  3. i have two friends/relatives born on the 29th. it's more common than I thought. Great card - too funny. love that brown diamond background.

  4. I know some leap birthday kiddos….although I kinda feel sorry for them. Love the leaping pig!
