Balloon Birthday Card

Oh my, it's May. The Bank Holiday weekend is over and last night I stayed up really late to place my pre-order for goodies from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue. I'm super excited about the items that I've ordered and can't wait for Mr Brown (the UPS delivery men) to bring my box of goodies. Mind you, I still have lots of other goodies in my craft room to play with.

My niece will be six in a couple of weeks time. I'll miss her birthday party because I am off to Telford for a Stampin' Up! Regional Event, but her actual birthday is the day after so I won't miss that.

This is the card that I've made for her.

I used the Celebrate Today stamp set along with some Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper and also some Gold Foil Sheet. I started by inking up the balloon stamp with Calypso Coral ink and stamped off before I stamped the image on to the Whisper White card stock. The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay ink.

The Calypso Coral bow was cut out using the Balloon Framelits that co-ordinate with the Celebrate Today stamp set. No fussy cutting for me this time. I think the bow makes a cute and girly addition to the Bermuda Bay balloon basket. I hope that Niamh likes it too.

The Stampin' Up! supplies used on this card were:
