Balloon Sitter


Hi everyone! Today I've another birthday card to share. The cute little girl featured on today's card is the Balloon Sitter digital stamp from the Bugaboo Brat Collection by Bugaboo Stamps. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a rubber stamp by Penny Black.


My card base is Cranberry Crisp layered with White Cardstock then patterned paper stitched around the edges. The shadow layer is Old Olive embossed using the Happy Birthday Embossing Folder layered on Cranberry Crisp. The image and sentiment are printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges then layered the image on Cranberry Crisp. To embellish the card I added a bow made with organdy ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
