Square Birthday Card

I wanted to enter a card into the Mod Squad Challenge which calls for a birthday theme but the extra rule is that you have to add a balloon to the design. I decided since I had my wreath builder template out I would try to do a card using that method and I ended  up with a very different look then I had anticipated but it is gradually growing on me.


I used images from the Gina K. Designs Scooter Diva set for the balloon and presents. And, the circle frame and the sentiment is from the Wreath Builder stamp set. I die cut the circle frame and the orange layer with Gina K. Designs small and large stitched dies. I colored the balloons and gifts designs with Bic Mark-It pens.

I got this birthday card done yesterday evening and then later on I read a message where we were invited to attend a birthday party for a cousin of Arlin's. So this will be a card for that occasion.

Well, I hope you are having a happy Friday. The weekend arrives too soon each week. And, my Friday will be spent getting ready for company that is arriving Saturday morning. I thank all of you for your visits and comments and I hope your weekend is a great one.

God bless,
Verna

The first thing I noticed was the bright color combination that you used on this fun card. Then I saw the balloons! Great design and you have a card for that birthday you are going to. Just got back from Florida, should have stayed a little longer. Still, have to get my rat room back to working order. That means I need to do some cleaning. Have a good weekend.

YOu are so good at thinking out of the 'box' with using your stamps. This is a clever design, and bright with color. I like it, and your recipient will too! Excellent use of the wreath builder set and what a cute way to get the balloon imagery in your design. TFS & Hugs.
