Fresh Star Balloons
I love the balloon stamps in the Balloon Bash set that's in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog, especially the star balloon. I guess I have a thing for stars lately (star framelits, star embossing folder, star stamps). The layout for this card is thanks to the fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week. I stamped star balloons in Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, and Daffodil Delight. I stamped the #happybirthday in Strawberry Slush as well. I know I'm not alone when I say that I am NOT ready to say goodbye to the retiring In Colors in a couple of months. These colors feel so summery to me (and I have a summer birthday--maybe that's why I'm drawn to them). I layered stamped panel on some Daffodil Delight card stock and then on some Strawberry Slush that I textured with the Lucky Stars embossing folder. I added a Coastal Cabana chevron strip from the In Colors Backgrounds DSP stack and then tied all of the layers together with some Daffodil Delight cotton ribbon. Finally, I mounted everything to a white card base. Happy Birthday (or unBirthday) to all of you!
