Celebrate Today

Happy Monday!  After a beautiful Easter Sunday yesterday, today is back to work for me.  This morning, I'm sharing a card that I made to play along with the Can You Case It color challenge!

Since I needed a quick birthday card, I decided to pull out my Celebrate Today Stamp Set along with the Balloon Framelit Dies.  I can't believe I hadn't used these before.  What a great way to pull together a quick birthday card!  I will definitely be using these more often!  Here's my card:

I started with a Basic Black Card Base and added a layer of Crisp Cantaloupe that I had embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  I cut two baloons from a piece of Gold Soiree specialty paper.  I used both sides of one sheet as both of the colors really looked pretty together.  I stamped the last balloon with pistachio pudding ink onto whisper white card stock and then stamped birthday with Memento black ink under the Happy.  I used a little black and white twine from my stash as I felt like it needed a little more black.  I blinged it up with some gold sequin trim tied into the twine and cut a few of the gold sequins off of the trim and glued to the card.  I love it and I hope you do too!

I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!
