Balloons for your Birthday


Hello Friends ... Happy Tuesday!

I'm headed out shortly but before I leave, I wanted to share a quick card with you today.  I've created this card for the latest challenge over at Addicted to CAS.


 It just so happens that today is my beautiful granddaughter Morgan's 29th birthday!


Even though I had already sent her a card, I had her in mind when creating today.

 Here's what I've used to create my card . . .

Die'sire Edge'ables - Wishing You A Happy Birthday

Crafter's Companion Wishing You A Happy Birthday Die 'sire Edge'ables Cutting & Embossing Die

Impression Obsession - Balloons


 I have used what remained in a few of my sponge daubers (Tim Holtz distress oxide inks) to created the background behind my sentiment edger.  And did the same to color my balloons.  A fine tip black marker was used to create the balloons strings.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a FABULOUS day!
