Birthday Balloons & Bits

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Balloons". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I have several stamp sets with balloons in them, and decided to use this one by Simon Says Stamp. I love all the interesting little "bits" in this stamp set. This card is going to someone in the family whose favorite color is (you've guessed it) purple! 

Since I have a few stars in my background, I thought I'd add this to the gallery at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, which is 'It's Written in the Stars.'

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Birthday Bits (Simon Says Stamp)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Doll Pink, Black (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Black and White Essentials (My Favorite Things)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Soft Granite (Hero Arts), Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine (Altenew)
Accessories: Enamel Dots (Doodlebug), Glitter Tape (American Crafts)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

You have all the colors coordinating to go with the balloon. I love all the different sizes of the balloons and that strip of black and white, perfect touch!

the font on this card goes so well with the ties on the balloons. A very sweet card and I am sure your family member will enjoy their favorite color.
