Virginia's View Challenge #6

Hello!

Now that the Stretch Your Stamps 2 Class is all done, I'm hoping to concentrate, once again, on playing in some challenges. 

I've been wanting to join in the fun over at Virginia's View Challenge #6 all month long and finally had the chance tonight to create a card - just in the nick of time too!


I used the fun Balloons die set from Simon Says Stamp and created a layered birthday card for a friend. I love the Doodlebug Design, Fruit Stand, 6x6 paper pack - perfect for celebrating a birthday!


I stamped the Diagonal Stripes from My Favorite Things in Sunshine Ink onto the orange balloon shape and added some Mini Stars die-cuts, along with the sentiment from Friendship Messages. I popped up the orange piece with dimensional adhesives and added Clear Wink of Stella to the stars.

It was an easy card to create but I love the bright, happy colors!

Thanks for stopping by! ♥

Love this fun birthday card! It has such a happy feel. Love the pretty flower paper. And I also want to thank you for your former posts about the card class. I didn't participate, but by seeing your cards i can learn and imagine a little bit how it was, and try some myself.
