They say its your Birthday

Well it may not be YOUR birthday...but it IS my teenage daughter's birthday so first and foremost let me say Happy Birthday Teenage Daughter!

So of course, when I was thinking of today's card, I had to do a birthday card in honor of my daughter. Its a pretty simple but fun card. I used the Chickie with the heart stamp....but masked the heart! I mean...he really needed a bunch of balloons instead!

Now for a closer look...

And for the inside I decided to do a little paper piecing on the balloons....

I used crystal laquer on the balloons and raised the middle one with a pop dot. Also, though the camera doesn't pick it up (no matter how many times I tried), on the celery cardstock I stamped the little starburst from the petit four stamp set.

Stamps used: PF14 Party Time, D112 Chickie w/Heart

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!


  1. See, I knew that once you stopped thinking so hard you would create something too awesome! It's darling! Love how you laquerd the balloons, it really sets them off.

  2. Seriously, Wendy?! Could this card be any cuter?! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bouquet of balloons you created. I'm sure you daughter had a huge smile when she got this cutie.

    Thanks so much for sharing!!
