Bright Birthday Balloons

To me, nothing says "celebration" like a balloon bouquet. Where there are balloons, there is bound to be a party! Today's card makes me happy...

Birthday card featuring the Balloon Bouquet punch, Crazy About You stamp set and Hello You Thinlits.
Now, who wouldn't love to receive this card on their birthday? I drew my colour palette from the Cherry On Top DSP stack from the Annual Catalogue. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the new products from the seasonal catalogues, I forget all about the AWESOME goodies in the Annual Catty. No more! I love the bright colours: Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay and crisp Whisper White. I began with a piece of DSP and stamped the balloon strings in Basic Black ink. Then I went to work with my Balloon Bouquet punch and punched several balloons from card stock and DSP to complete my bouquet.

I layered the front panel on a piece of Watermelon Wonder card stock and then mounted it on a panel ow Whisper White card stock that I had embossed using the Confetti TIEF. The card is built on a Bermuda Bay card base.
The sentiment, from the Crazy About You stamp set, is stamped in Basic Black ink. The die-cut sentiment is done in silver glimmer paper using the Hello You Thinlits. The only embellishment I added was a little bow made with Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Satin that stuff! Here's hoping we see it in more colours in the next Annual Catalogue!

On the inside I embossed the bottom edge of a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Confetti TIEF again. I stamped the sentiment from the Greatest Greetings set in Basic Black. I think it is perfect because this card just makes me smile!
I hope your week has been filled with smiles so far! Have a great day!!
