MFTWSC133-Birthday balloons and stars

I was able to stamp out this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge card over the weekend. I wasn't sure about this layout at first, but I pulled out a few birthday themed products (stars, tickets, and balloons) and this card came to be .  
I'm still on track for my Club 52 status. You can find the sketch HERE on this post on the MFT Blog. 

The birthday sentiment is from the Circus Spectacular stamp set. I added a few stars in Lemon Drop ink. The tickets were cut with the Mini Ticket Border Die-namics and I used the Washi Patterns stamps to add some festive prints to them. I do love those new Party Balloon Die-namics, too. They are so fun to tie on to a card. 

I cut a star using the Star Stax Die-namics from Steel Blue cs and then ran it through my paper crimmper. I love making my own corrugated embellies. Just the right amount of texture. I anchored the balloons behind the Factory Green Button. 

Thanks for checking out my card, today. I am working hard, gearing up for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges. You'll want to make sure you are a Fan Club Member to join the fun over on Splitcoast stampers. 

Supplies used:



  1. Fun card! The balloons are fabulous and I love the textured star.

  2. How fun! I love the pattern balloons! I'm with you in keeping up with the 52 sketches! This will be three years straight for me! Yeah!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
