Hello Friends, I am going to have to make this a super quick post today as it is my birthday today when I am writing this and hubby is taking me out to dinner. I was short on time so I cased THIS fabulous card that I found on Pinterest! I started off by sponging the background, I then stamped the balloons on the card base in black. Then I stamped them again so that I could watercolor them and pop them up for some dimension on the card base. I added some splatters of color, some stars, shadows on the balloons,the sentiment, and I was done. I love the way it came together! Sentiment and balloons are from Verve.
Before I go I would like to welcome the talented Monika Reeck to our team, she will be with us at Seize the Birthday for the next two months as our Surprise Party Guest! Welcome Monika, I am so glad you are with us! Have a great week everyone and if you have some time to be creative, I hope you will consider joining us over at STB for our Anything Goes Challenge! Just remember it has to be a birthday project! Nanc’
