Inkspirational Challenges - Birthday

Our new challenge at Inkspirational is the word 'birthday'. An easy challenge at last!!! Here I used a Craftwork Cards balloon (the sentiment is part of the stamp, black embossed onto a Distress Ink background from my bits box. The layer on top of the base is also from the bits box. I think it was made with Gelatos- I never got to grips with them. I really must dig them out and either use them or get rid of them.

Anyway I defy you to say you don't need any birthday cards. Make birthday cards and join in our challenge!

It is a lovely birthday card. The contrast between the stripes and the green looks great. TFS!

That balloon stamp is awesome! I like how you added the striped and green paper to give the card a bit more interest!

Another great card, Marina! Stripes get me every time and I love the bold color choice. Thanks for playing again at Watercooler Wednesday!

I agree, Gelatos are just 'one of those things' you either use or you don't. I HAD to have mine and only used them a couple of times. Your background looks great so perhaps you should use them more often! I love the sentiment within the balloon :) xx

Terrific card! Love that balloon against your lovely BG. I never got to grips with the Gelatos either... I'm going to offload mine too.

Celebration happening all over your card with the gelatos/stripes background and the fabulous sentiment-enclosed balloon! Love it!
Gelatos...I have four and have yet to figure them out!

Where do I start! So many great elements to this card, from that balloon to the stripes and those lucious bits of lime green and yellow peeking out from behind everything. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.
