I've had these three ink colors on my desk for about a week now: PTI Sweet Blush, WP9 Sweet Gelato, and SU! Real Red. Originally, I planned to use them for snowflakes. I still might, but decided the colors would also make fun birthday cards.
This first card is for a sketch challenge. I loved the layered focal point of the sketch and die cut rectangles out of coordinating cardstocks to match the stamped balloons. I didn't like the long balloon string that came in the Birthday Style stamp set so instead I used a small image from Festive Greetings. It's meant to string Christmas lights, but I think it makes a cute balloon string too!
I added a secondary sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 4 to the outside of this card and the inside of this next card.
The stamped design of both cards is based on this week's Make It Monday, colorful card corners, so all of the images are stamped in the corners. I added a few bits of 'confetti' with my favorite little stamp from Dream Believer.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
