1. One Layer Simplicity - "Attractive Opposites" - my opposites are the rectangular shape filled with the oval balloons -- Also the small print "happy" and the large cursive "birthday
2. CAS(E) this Sketch 104
3. NBUS Challenge #3 - hosted by Darnell at D J Kardkreations. I've enjoyed following Darnell's blog for several years now. I am sure you will enjoy it too!
4. Seize the Birthday - the "topping" is "PARTY" -- balloons are certainly needed for a party!
The original concept for this card design came from Susan R at Simplicity. She made this beautiful card. Susan always gives great design tips.
I also used this layout on two other cards that can be seen HERE . I just looked at Susan's blog again... she has also used this design again-- take a look HERE.
The balloon stamps are from PaperTrey Ink -- except the bows and "birthday" - I think are Avery Elle.
Christmas vacation is over. Back to work today. Luckily I really like my job. Teaching life science to a bunch of 11 year olds is a hoot!
As always, thanks for looking and your comments! I hope you are having fun at your job too.
