Hi there! I've been really busy this week! I made a small handful of cards recently and have a few more that need to be finished. They are all so cute and I'm really excited to share them with all of you, but decided to post one at a time so the recipients had a chance to enjoy them :) It's also a new month which means a new challenge for Naughty or Nice Challenges!! Last month's theme was love and I got some good laughs from my naughty submission, but for this month's birthday challenge, I'm going for nice :)
So let's get to it! One of my dearest friends in the world lives across the country and I only get to see her a couple of times a year. She is coming to town (YAY!!!!) and wanted me to make a couple of cards for her to give to her family, including this one for her godson's his first birthday. I LOVE using this stamp for babies and thought it would be fun if I tried something new with the design of the card. Although it took some practice to get it right, I ended up really liking the final product. Take a look and tell me what you think:
I just love the alternating colors :)
Isn't it just so cute?!? I'm so happy with how it turned out!
I colored the image with colored pencils and used Glossy Accents on the balloon. I used the Swiss Dot embossing folder on the front of the card, added a little ribbon for interest, and cut the ovals with my Spellbinders dies. The stamp and sentiment are from the same Stampin' Up set, but I am not sure of the name of it. It was a yard sale find :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
