Birthday Balloons

Anything Goes is the theme of our challenge at Scrapy Land beginning today!  Be sure to enter for your chance to win a $15.00 gift certificate to the Scrapy Land store.  That's right......Anything Goes!  Just remember to use one of the brands of dies that they carry in the store!  Can't wait to see what you create!

I used a Darcie's Heart and Home image (colored in Copics) and added some balloons from Paper Smooches like you can find here in Scrapy Land store.  Some baker's twine was added to the balloons and then the sentiment stamped (a little crooked I might add - I've never stamped anything straight in my life so why start now)!!  This little guy is all ready for fall so thought it'd be cute for a masculine birthday coming up next month.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and head on over to Scrapy Land Challenges and enter your creation.

I'm Back...................I got back from my trip and can't even begin to describe what a wonderful time I had! Lots of fun and laughter - and just a marvelous feeling.  Something I'll remember forever.   I'll be around to everyone's blog as soon as possible.  Promise!!!   Right now everything is a bit overwhelming with all the things I have to catch up on.

oh my gosh, you are sooooo totally the QUEEN of minimal, but i love that you do it in a way that still incorporates a wealth of tiny perfect details. plus your coloring is so amazing! (ps: BEST use of twine EVER in the entire universe... except maybe for the bakery cookie boxes of my childhood!!!) :) :) :)

It was a wonderful time wasn't it! Something I'll always remember as well and look forward to doing it again! Love your card, such a cute image holding onto the balloons!

MaryH said...

Delightful image with her pretty bright balloons. You must have every dot paper that has been made! I like the oranges & blues on this one real well too. Will have to see if I can get something for Scrapy Land - will check what dies they sell. That bakers twine makes awesome balloon strings. & I think your sentiment goes perfect with the little birthday girl. TFS & Hugs
