Birthday Balloons

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I've got a fun birthday card for you today that features some fun products from MFT and Verve.  I started by stamping my card base with the Happy Background cling stamp from MFT. I then die cut three balloons. 

Originally, I was planning on having a sentiment elsewhere on the card but then realized that I didn't really want a sentiment competing with the word background. That's when it hit me to stamp it directly on the balloons. I know, not a big deal but for me and my brain, it kind of was. :)  I then decided to add some matching sequins to each of the balloons for something extra. 

As always, I truly appreciate you stopping by. Happy Tuesday.

LET'S GO SHOPPING

What a great idea to stamp the sentiment on the balloons. I assure you, I probably wouldn't have thought of it, or if I had, I'd be pretty proud of myself. :) Wonderful card! Love the bit of bling with the addition of the sequins, too. Just the right touch!

What a wonderful card! It makes me smile just to look at it! I bet so etching similar with flowers would work, also. Excellent CAS design!
