Happy Birthday Balloons

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. Hope you all had a great weekend.

Yesterday, I went to a bridal shower for a young woman in our church. The tradition here in Pittsburgh is playing games and if you win a nice gift is usually yours. I won a tea gift basket.

It was really a great gift. Two different types of teas- a Tazo tea- and some Bentley tea in a wood box-a tea kettle-some chocolate hazelnut pirouettes-oven mitt and potholder-and it was packed in a beautiful basket. I was excited for sure.

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for another one of the fan club challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Actually this one fit into 3 of the challenge categories.  Susan (aka rainy) hosted a sketch challenge, Julie (aka jmasse) hosted a color challenge and Judy (aka stampingqueenjar) hosted an inspiration challenge.

I used the Stampin-Up set - "party this way" to create a birthday card. The balloon images and sentiment are stamped in lucky limeade. I cut out 2 of them and popped one of them up on dimensionals.

For my background daffodil delight layer, I used the cuttlebeug birthday embossing folder for some texture. My 3 rectangle panels are lucky limeade designer paper.

The rectangle panel across the center is more lucky limeade designer paper. I used a Spellbinder scalloped rectangle die and cut it in wisteria wonder to frame my image and sentiment panels.

I punched out 3 wisteria wonder circles to complete my card. Well that's it for me today so until next time.........God bless.

1.  Make My Monday color wheel challenge - split complimentary colors.
2.  Crafty Catz has an anything goes challenge #145.
3.  Polka Doodles has a celebration challenge.
4.  Wags 'n Whiskers has a birthday challenge.
