Everything’s Coming Up Balloons – Sunday Stamps 117

Hello there friends! It’s Sunday, which means another Sunday Stamps challenge! Yay!! I’m sure most of you busy with holiday activities but the challenge runs for two weeks so play along if you have the chance!

SS117-12_20_15Isn’t this a pretty color combination?? It just says birthday to me, so that’s the direction I went:

A sweet birthday card meant for a sweet young lady 🙂 I’ve had this stamp set for quite awhile and have no idea why I haven’t used it before now! I love that the balloons do double duty by having the sentiment on them so you can really fill the whole card front with balloons!

I tried and tried to stamp the balloon strings that are part of the stamp set but discovered that they had a manufacturing defect. I will take care of that with the company (it happens), and I tried working around the flaws without success, so I pulled out a die set instead. Aren’t the balloon strings and bows adorable?? Thank you Papertrey Ink, for rescuing me!

I don’t think it would be a young lady’s birthday without some sparkle so I carefully added Wink of Stella to all the balloons. Now they look like a party!!
