Happy Birthday Card

Hope everyone had a good week!  Things here are really hectic with the end of school soon and Rachel's prom is tonight, so lots going on.  Checking my cards I realized that I didn't post the birthday card I made for my daughter.  I was so happy with how it turned out.  I actually made two of them so I would have one for my stash.

I thought this would be harder to make but surprisingly they came together really well.  I tied the silver string on first and then placed the balloons where I thought I wanted them and then glued down the bottom ones first using dimensionals for the ones I placed over them making sure I gathered all my strings together.  I used my glue dots to tie them together cutting off the extra strings.  I used glue dots again for the bow which helped secure them down better.


Stamps - Party Pack
Paper - Whisper White, DSP, Black & Silver Glimmer
Accessories - Balloon Bouquet Punch, Bow Builder Punch

Well, I had better get going!  Rachel is getting her hair done and will be home soon and everyone's coming here to take pictures before leaving.  I can't believe she is 16 and going to a PROM!!! Where has all the time gone!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

That's a fantastic bunch of balloons all tied up with a pretty bow! Very festive, and love the striped paper throughout. Those glittery balloons are very fun, and the black really sets everything off. Enjoy these busy days!

This is such a happy card, and I love how you added the bow to the bottom, it's fantastic. Does this balloon punch have a matching stamp set? Gosh, I think I need to add the punch to my ever growing wish list ☺ I hope Rachel had a wonderful time at Prom, it sure does go fast. I miss my kiddos so much.
