Birthday Balloons and Hugs

Hi Everyone!

I hope you're all doing well. Thank you for visiting with me again today. I have another birthday card to share with you today! Shocking I know; but hang in there...I actually have a different card planned for Friday!

This card is super simple. I just used Altenew's Birthday Greetings stamp and masked the balloons across the front. I stamped the balloons on a piece of Neenah Solar White in Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, and Dusty Concord distress inks. I took some fine felt tip markers and drew the strings  on free hand and then I also used my clear Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the balloons. You know I love my Wink of Stella pen, and I use it quite often. I do wish it showed up in photos a little better because it's always hard to tell whether it's actually there or not!
Anyhow, I digress....I stamped the sentiment from the same set in black ink and then mounted the image panel onto a piece of Simon Says Stamp Black cardstock.
Fairly simple card; but I was pleased with the final results. I hope you like it as well!

Have a fabulous day and I will see you again soon!
