The Birthday Project - Up, Up, and Away

Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the My Favorite Things February Birthday Project challenge. This is a new monthly challenge that started last month where we have a different challenge to create birthday cards each month.

As someone who struggles to make birthday cards for some reason, I love the creative push of the challenge and knowing that I'm getting some birthday cards made for my stash. :) For my card today I decided to stay with the distress ink and rainbow obsession I've had lately and create a big colourful balloon for the focal image.

I used the large round balloon from the Balloon STAX Die-namics and die cut it from a piece of card stock to create a mask, and then I used distress inks and the Drifts & Hills stencil to add the rainbow colour inside the balloon.

Once I had all of the colour added I used the Anything-but-Birthday Wishes stamp set and stamped the sentiment in the center with black ink. I also added a silver string hanging from the balloon with a bow tied at the base of the balloon.

You can see this months challenge and enter your projects for a chance to win at the MFT CHallenge Blog here. Thanks so much for stopping by!
