MFTWSC #383 and Seize the Birthday


I never thought I would see the day that I would say the words "I am getting low on birthday cards!"
Well that day has come and time to start building my stash of birthday cards up again. Slipping in today with a card for the MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge #383 and Seize the Birthday!

I started off by sponging some Abandoned Coral, Fosilized Amber and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock and then cutting three MFT Stamps Big Balloons out, one in each colour. I made my own fishtail banner from MFT Stamps Blu Raspberry cardstock and then cut a zig zag square from white and adhered the balloons to the square. The sentiment from the MFT Stamps Gumball Greeting card kit was white embossed on black. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish it off and done.


The Seize the Birthday challenge is anything goes this week!

This is awesome Tracey, I have to admit, I have a soft spot for balloons on a birthday card.

Gorgeous colors on the balloons, Tracy. I never thought that oxide inks would makd such bright rich colors. I also love your interpretation on the sketch!
Funny thing is that I haven't made birthday cards that much, now I think I need to build up my stash, too! Thank you so much for leaving a lovely comment to my blog which I almost missed. Have a good day!
