Happy Birthday 2 You

I am back again today with a card for the MFTWSC sketch.  I am so excited that it is now on the MFT blog instead of SCS.  My son's neighbor friend's birthday was yesterday and we were in need of a card for a boy.  I keep seeing all these cute set with balloons popping up all over, I don't have any of those so I needed to be resourceful.  I pulled out my Decorative Circle Tag Stax and used them as balloons.



I got this pretty glitter paper by DCWV the other day at JoAnn's craft store, I love the sparkle with out all the flakes of glitter coming off when you touch it.  The downfall...it scratches, can't you see where my nails scratched the bottom of the sentiment panel just from handling it?  I didn't notice it until it was all said and done, then it was too late to fix it, I will have to be extra careful next time I use it.



I used the sketch at MFT for my birthday card.

Well, aren't you smart??? What a great idea for the balloons! I'm glad you posted this today. I've been so busy doing all the DTGD challenges that I forgot I hadn't done this one yet! :)

Oh, well, Heather, we'll just call that distressed. Great boy card! They're so hard, but this one is perfect. Great improv on the balloons. I need some balloon dies. Heck, I just got the stars, finally.
