CADB Post: Birthday Wishes

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. It's time once again for me to post on the Card A Day Blog. This weeks theme is " Birthday".

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, then added a piece of pink polka dot paper, cut to 5.25" x 4".

For my image, I stamped a birthday balloon image from "Stampendous", on a piece of white cardstock  using black ink, then cutting it down. To color the balloons, I used " Shimmerz ", the colors that I used were, Evergreen, Royal Red, and Ultra Marine. I used a paintbrush to apply the Shimmerz, and this gave the balloons a shimmery look. For the confetti, I used various different colors of " Smooch " pearlized accent ink, dabbing it on wherever there were dots for the confetti on the stamped image, and adding a few extras. I  inked around the edges with pink ink, then adhered the image to the left hand side of my card.

For my sentiment  I made a label from the Spellbinder die collection, Fancy Framed Tags Two, using white cardstock, then stamped my sentiment on the middle of it using pink ink. I inked the edges of the tag with the same pink ink, then attached it to my card using dimensional tape.

One of the Yahoo groups that I'm in has a birthday club, and I will be sending this card to someone in our group that is having a birthday this month.

I hope you liked my card, and that you leave me a comment if you have the chance. I really love hearing what everyone has to say about my creations.
