Birthday Wishes

I did this Birthday card for the Moxie Fab World - In My Beautiful Balloon Challenge. The challenge was to use the Hot Air Balloon in your project in an innovative way, but I could not think of anything out of the box and created a simple Birthday card using the hot air balloon.


I used the Hot Air Balloon image from Verve Up, Up and Away set. I paper pierced it. The Hot air balloon's in this set are perfect for Paper piercing. I then sponged some Ranger DI - Tumbled Glass around the cut out panel. The Cloud are die cuts from PTI, that I inked around the edge using a copic marker. Sentiment is from Verve Circular Sentiments.  I liked how this card turned out, I want to give this card another try and do the sponging with the nestabilities die still in place to create a white border. I also did some faux stitching on this card. I pierced the holes using Tim Holtz Designer Ruler and then joined them using Copic Marker.

Thanks for stopping by,
Supplies:
Stamp - VERVE Up Up and Away , Circular Sentiments Stamp set
Paper - Bazill Dot Basics, PTI White and Dark Chocolate CS, SU Patterned Paper
Ink - Memento Black, Copics
Other - Nestabilities, PTI Cloud Dies

Joan, I love this. It looks like a perfect masculine card to me although I am sure it can be used for ladies too. Great paperpiecing. You do such a great job on everything you do.
