Balloon Birthdays

I’m making heaps of birthday cards at the moment – have you seen the awesome hashtag on social media? #imbringingbirthdaysback – its a great idea started by the lovely Shannon West from Stampin’ Up! home office in Utah, we don’t send enough birthday cards anymore, its just too easy to sent a birthday message when facebook reminds us its someone’s birthday – but I’m determined to get out of that habit! I am aiming to get myself organised and a stack of cards made this week so they are ready to write and send.

This card really pops! Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette – BOOM!

I’m loving the Balloon Bouquet punch, and used it lots here to get this fabulous balloons. I sponged one side of all the balloons to create the illusion of dimension and added them to a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder.

I wasn’t sure about the ‘strings’ on these balloons, I’m still not sure if a Basic Grey or Smoky Slate marker might have been a better choice than black – never mind it is what it is. This card was made specially for a nursing home that I donate a lot of birthday cards to, they love a simple card without too much detail and bright coloured cards are loved by their residents with Dementia.
