Celebrate Today, Happy Birthday!!

I'm involved in an Occasions Catalog Swap as part of the Creating Success Training Group - this is the swap I made recently!  We mailed our swaps to the swap coordinator, and she's sorted them and mailed them back to all of us - I'll be sure to share them as soon as they arrive!!  I can't wait to see them myself!!

This is the design I came up with.....  I just love these In Colors (Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantalope) - I am certainly going to miss them when they retire at the end of May.  I'm sure I'll be using them a lot in the coming months!!

I started this card with a Strawberry Slush card base, then added a layer of Coastal Cabana Card Stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White Card Stock embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.

Decorative Dots Embossing Folder  133520  $7.95

Then, we get to the fun part....

I chose the new Celebrate Today Stamp set and coordinating Balloon Framelits Dies for this swap.  These two items are bundled together for a 15% savings on both items and can be found in the new Occasions Catalog

The first balloon uses the polka dots stamped in Coastal Cabana ink and that cute bow stamped in Strawberry Slush ink, then die-cut with the coordinating balloon and bow framelits.

The next (Happy) balloon was stamped in Crisp Cantalope ink and then the "birthday" was added in Coastal Cabana ink, then this balloon was also die-cut with the framelits.

I also added some coordinating (of course!) Thick Baker's Twine (in Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana) to the balloons.

Finally, I added a Coastal Cabana bow (from the Sale-a-Bration Best Year Ever Accessory Pack) to tie the balloons together.  This Accessory Pack features 3 colors of 1/4" Ribbon and 2 sizes of buttons - in Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral - all for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!!
