Made this just for you!

Happy Thursday....one more day till the weekend!  Yippee!!  Tonight marks the first of three consecutive days of birthday card buffets for me and I thought I'd show you a preview of one of the projects that will be on offer for my guests...

Birthday card featuring the Balloon Bash stamp set and Best Year Ever DSP.
This is a pretty quick and easy card...the toughest part is the fussy cutting of the banner, but more on that later!  I began with a Sahara Sand card base and added a background layer of Best Year Ever Sale-a-bration DSP...yep, you can get it for free!  I added some Coastal Cabana thick baker's twine as a subtle embellishment.  The label is die-cut using the Top Note Bigz die...can you believe that is the very first die I ever bought five years ago??  It seems like such a long time ago now!  I stamped the sentiment from the Ballon Bash set in Soft Suede ink...I love the cheekiness of the #you'rewelcome :)

The banner is stamped in Crushed Curry ink and fussy cut using paper snips.  Not difficult, but, as I said above, the hardest step in this very simple design.  I popped the label up with dimensionals to make it stand out even more.  The only other embellishments on the front of this card are the In-colour sequins that I added for a little bling.

On the inside I stamped another image and sentiment from the Ballon Bash set using Soft Suede ink.  Once again, I stamped a second image in Crushed Curry ink and fussy cut out the solid candles, layering them over the Soft Suede ones.

Before I go I want to share some exciting news with you!  My design for this week's Sunday Stamps challenge was chosen as a top pick over at PPA this week!  A big thank you to the Design Team for the shout out!
