How are you? I hope all is well in your crafting world! This is my second post for the day. Please scroll down to see my card for Dies R Us.
Today is the start for another sweet challenge and we are celebrating a second birthday...yeah! Please visit Paper Sweeties for list of fun festivities and prizes!!!
If you came from Lisa Elton's blog, you are in the right place. And, your next stop will be Michelle Bala's blog. I was inspired by all the balloons and banner in the inspiration photo. Isn't that a sweet birthday scene? So, I got to work and brought out some fun Doolebug paper with lots of balloons! We hope you will join us this month for the challenge!
And, here is my card...
For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with some Doodlebug paper. The Paper Sweetie stamp sets I used are Celebrate(cake and banner) and You Make Me Smile(sentiment). The cake was colored with copics. I added glitter to the banner, cake, and buttons. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. To finish off the card I added a Tim Holtz button and lovely seam binding ribbon from Paper Sweeties-Raspberry, Cotton Candy. You will want to hop along and view more wonderful creations from the team. Please follow the list below...have fun!
