CYCI #130 Birthday Challenge

This week's challenge over at Can You Case It is a birthday challenge.  We all need to make birthday cards at one time or another, so this is a great opportunity to show off your creativity and to have a birthday card all ready when you need one.

I chose to do a triple stamped technique for my card using two birthday balloon stamps from my stash.  I purchase a lot of my stamps at yard sales so I don't always know the brand/name of the stamps I used.  I used a larger stamp as my focal point and colored just those balloons using my Spectrum Noir markers.  I stamped a smaller balloon around the background and left it uncolored.  I added the sentiment and some red sequins (all I had) and decided to cover the colored balloons with glossy accents to really make them pop.  I hope you like this card and will take the opportunity to join in the fun by taking this challenge!  Give it a go!  You've got nothing to lose.

Thanks for stopping by!
