Winners and Balloons

Hello and good morning!
I do have a card to share but firstly I am delighted to say that the winner of my prize for the birthday celebrations at 


Is Lesley G ... Congratulations! Your package will be sent to you shortly
A full list of winners is up on the Blog ... Go take a look

Last weekend a friend's husband celebrated his birthday ... another guy card ... not always easy huh?
I decided to use the balloon stamp again ...


I apologise for the poor quality of the photos ... we had one of those days when one minute the sun is blinding ... then suddenly it goes dark and the heavens open! 
However, I hope you can see the sky background which I did with chalks and the PTI cloud die ... really simple but effective


After stamping the balloons I cut out the birthday word and layered it up before putting it back


I used the cardboard from all those cat food boxes for my layering ... Well I have enough of them!

That's it for today my sweet friends...

Have yourselves a lovely day

Be safe

Perfect masculine card and you can never go wrong with balloons for that occasion. Gorgeous background with the clouds. And a wonderful way to repurpose the cardboard boxes! Love how you used sequins in different colors. They add a lovely sparkle!
Hope you have a great day. Sending a hug.

The stamping over the sentiment technique you used looks so amazing. It's a really great effect. Your soft and subtle clouds are the perfect place for your balloons to fly. Hugs!
