Balloon Birthday Card - CTO #26

Hello all my crafty friends! It's Tuesday and we have another challenge for you over at Celebrate The Occasion. This week the challenge is Birthday (easel card).

Here is my interpretation:



If you've never made an easel card before there is a great tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. So get your mojo going and create a birthday easel card so you can join in the fun over at Celebrate The Occasion!!

Supplies used: cardstock - kraft; patterned papers - confetti cake and getting bigger from life of the party by Basic grey; element stickers from life of the party by Basic Grey; button from Crate Paper; hemp cord - my stash; rub on - Frank sidekicks miniMarks by American Crafts; ink - brown ColorBox

What a cute card!! Love the easel style (haven't tried this yet), the cheery colors, and those balloons popping off the card! Wanted to thank you for your recent visits! So glad you have been enjoying some of my little creations--I really appreciate you taking the time to say so! I have looked through several pages and have really enjoyed myself!! Thought I was doing so well and then realized I had barely made it through this month's designs!!! ( and it's only 1/2 over!!). You are one busy girl!! Keep up the good work! Love your style! Thanks again!!
