I think the cards I make most around my house are birthday cards. I can never have enough of them!! The SU Only Challenge this week is to make birthday cards…perfect for getting some made for when you need them.
I made this for a friend of my oldest son and turned to my favorite kid birthday set again, Patterned Party. I love these balloons! I can’t remember where I found the layout (sorry) but I liked the idea of the three bright panels in the background and the asymmetry of the focal image. I did use a couple of retired SU things here, the Real Red wide grosgrain and the sentiment. You could easily replace these with current items but I continue to try to use what I have (to make room for more). This is a quick little card to put together but it looks special with the layers.
I can’t wait for you to see what the rest of the design team has made this week. As usual, there are multiple styles and loads of inspiration.
I am happy to say that my training in Denver is completed!!! The check ride went well and I got home late Friday night. We had some family in town which was very fun and now I am catching up. I leave tomorrow for my first trip. It is official…if you find yourself on a United Airlines Airbus 319/320, make sure you look to see if I am there. I hope to see stampers all across the country!
Off to stamp (haven’t done that in a while) and pack! Hope you have a great day. Back tomorrow with a new Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Thanks for dropping by!
