Birthday Balloons......PPA288, #GDP023





In the spirit of the Bringing Birthdays Back campaign I decided it was time to add some birthday cards to my stash. I let a piece of that beautiful designer paper from It's My Party take the lead on this card.  The stamped images from the May 2015 Paper Pumpkin set called Birthday Bundle complement the paper perfectly!  I just love when that happens!



Amy Lazzell has a fun sketch for us at Pals Paper Arts! Hope you play along!






Global Design Project has a Balloon Theme this week......

This is a fun birthday card and perfect for anyone! How cute is that sentiment with the DSP and balloon strings, the curly line work is just adorable!

Happy Scrapper said...

So cute and easy to duplicate for a set of cards, thank you for sharing!

Mary Fish said...

That sentiment is the perfect complement for the balloon paper! Fun and splashy mix!

It is amazing how well everything coordinates even though it is from different stamp sets and the paper plays a perfect role. The strip of white c.s. with the white circle tame this vibrant aper masterfully. Nicely done!

I'm adding to my stash as well to participate in the #imbringingbirthdaysback. This will be a fun one. Love the way it goes so well with the DSP and Sentiment swirls!

Thank you for sharing.

You picked the perfect SU suite for the Balloon challenge Linda! I love how everything coordinates, taking the angst out of choosing where to go next. Such a sweet card, easy to reproduce many times for this wonderful birthday campaign. Thanks for playing with us at Global Design Project this week.

This is so cheery! I certainly didn't have to "get my birthday back" since I send more cards than anyone I know.... Love it! I also am SO excited since next week I'm off to visit my gal pal Nancy Lempinen and Nance Leedy is joining us for a SPA day! Can't wait! Hugs
