birthday wishes...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a quick post of a card that I made for the current Stampin' Celebration challenge, inspiration photo... see below.  I will also be posting this in the Simon Says Stamp flickr group So Sparkly challenge since all the stamps and dies are from Simon Says Stamp.  Since this is a birthday card I'm going to post it to Seize the Birthday Anything Goes (obviously I didn't go with the "toppings" portion of the challenge!)


I die cut three balloons and then stamped them using light pink, light blue and light green.  A coat of Ranger Crystal Stickles was added and I let them dry.  Some BasicGrey Serenade patterned paper was used for the back drop.  I stamped the "birthday" in light green and then added "wishes" in black.  This cause some problems with photographing the card, but I think I finally got a decent one.

 
 

Thanks for stopping by...
