Birthday Balloons & Merry Monday Challenge #18
Trust everyone had a great weekend! Today I want to share a birthday card that features balloons. I think balloons are so festive and perfect for birthdays!
The card base is green CS with a layer of yellow and then the white panel that's embossed with the CB Birthday folder. I added a strip of green CS and then attached the fancy label that's been stamped with DRS Designs Birthday Wishes (020B) and then sponged with SU Handsome Hunter ink. The Birthday balloons (491E) were stamped on white CS with Handsome Hunter, Not Quite Navy, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow and Pumpkin Pie ink, heat embossed with clear EP, then cut out and popped up to give some dimension.
For Lesley's Merry Monday Challenge, I used the telescoping technique for my Girl Swirl Holly image (887G). The image was stamped 4 times on white CS, colored with Copics and cut with Nesties, then layered from largest to smallest. The sentiment "Happy Holly Days" (888B) was also stamped on white CS and cut with nesties.

Until next time,
