Seize the Birthday - Balloons - Surprise Party Guest

This month I am honored to be the Seize the Birthday's Surprise Party Guest.  Come join us to fill your stash of birthday cards.  The team has some awesome cards as inspiration.

First card, I sponged Distress Ink Oxides on the cardstock and then die cut this PTI Paper Clippings Birthday.
I used Nuvo Glitter Drops on the balloons.

This is a second one that I sponged a Chevron stencil on cardstock and then cut out the die cut.
You can see it better in real life than in the picture. Used Glossy Accents for the balloons.


Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Welcome Lin! Loved reading your intro to your blog. Don't you love being a grandma almost as much as being a crafter? We Live in Wisconsin but winter in Florida and I have had the pleasure to visit with Nancy every year and Now we have included our hubbies. I too have met so many lovely friends and I love only 40 minutes drive from Gina K designs.
    It is amazing how different both of your cards are and both are a great design. Happy to have you here with us for the next two months. Looking forward to seeing more of your craft.
