I made this card just because I had the time to stamp the other day (yay!) and now I need to find someone to send it too!
My inspiration for the layout was for a probably now closed challenge but I can't even figure out which one....my blog reader is out of whack ever since they decided to "make it better" and now I can't find stuff on it. And they keep adding in advertisements for fashion and jewelry...HELLO!! Nothing in my feed or my life would ever make anyone think I would be interested in a makeup blog or a jewelry blog.... If it's not paper crafting related it doesn't need to be in my feed! Come on man!
Anyway on to the card!
I had some fun with the Cherry on Top DSP and the Celebrate Today stamp set. They are a great match! Don't forget that the stamp set and coordinating framelits are available as a bundle for 15% off.
I pulled my colors right from this fun banner pattern. For the pennants on the balloon I stamped the full line in each color then just cut them out individually and glued them down to the die cut. I tried coloring them with markers and then stamping but the colors weren't looking vibrant enough for my liking.
I added some faux stitching around the larger Bermuda Bay banner. Other than that this is pretty straightforward.
Find something to celebrate today!
