Birthday Balloon

Flicking through blogland this morning, I noticed a great sketch at Sunday Stamps...

I am such a fan of nice, straightforward sketches like this, without any weird bits on them!! Using some glittery patterned papers I bought from The Range, and a super cute digi image from Heather Ellis, I made another birthday card...

It's soo difficult to catch the glittery shimmer in the papers but it is there!! I coloured with pro-markers then fussy cut the image and added a greeting done in Hobo font. Finally, I added a couple of strips of silver peel-offs along the top and the bottom of the red paper.

I'm also entering this card into the challenges at:

Brown Sugar #238 - birthday
QKR Stampede #231 - AG plus add sparkle
Alphabet Challenge - 'Y' for you choose
Creative Fingers #125 - AG..

thanks for visiting
