PPA30 On Your Birthday....





TGIF Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the challenge on the Pals Paper Arts Blog. This week is a KISS challenge, Keep It Simple, Sweetie.

The base is kraft card stock. I then stamped the balloon from the "Crazy for Cupcakes" set three times onto another piece of kraft card stock using black stazon. I masked off the middle balloon to stamp the third one. I colored the balloons in with markers. I stamped two more balloons on scrap kraft and colored them. I cut them out and added them to the card with some foam tape.

The sentiment is from the SU "On Your Birthday" set. I stamped that with black stazon using my stamp-a-ma-jig to get it straight. The ribbon is some retired riding hood red taffeta. I layered this piece onto the base of the same color. I didn't want the back of the colored piece showing, I think it just makes the card look better.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
