Birthday Balloons


Congrats to the Seize the Birthday challenge blog for reaching their 200th milestone! Check out their blog HERE for details of the celebration (there are prizes!). I was primarily inspired by the balloons and had full intentions to smoosh a group of colors on the background and totally forgot to do that step! DOH! I'll blame it on the distractions of a 6 year old grand-daughter! I also am using the layout for the current Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge.

I die cut the balloons from white card stock then used brushes to color blend the backgrounds. I added some detailing to the flowers with a white gel pen.

STAMPS: Balloon Bouquet (The Greetery).

PAPER: Sweet Blush, Stampers Select White, True Black, Bitty Big: Sweet Blush by Ink to Paper. 

INK: True Black, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Pale Peony, Hibiscus Burst, Melon Berry, Green Parakeet, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides by Ink to Paper.

DIES: Big Balloons, Balloon Bouquet, Crimped Frames (The Greetery). 


It's a rainy day in VA but it's been fun hanging out with my oldest grand-daughter while her little brother is in Pre-K and this is her "off" day from going to school in person. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!   ~Wanda

Hi Wanda!
Your card is STUNNING. I love everything about it. I'd seen it over at Seize The Birthday and I just had to come by for a closer look. WOWZERS. You were inspired and knocked it out of the park. Lovely!

You're always welcome to come by and also link up with us at Word Art Wednesday. We're blessed to have awesome sponsors (right now it's Clearly Besotted) and always Anything Goes/Family Friendly. I'd be honored to have you play along.

Thanks for sharing your talents. This one was a real treat for my eyes. Have a blessed week.
