Oops! Belated Birthday Balloons

I always hate to say it, as a cardmaker, that I miss too many birthdays.  That is why I like to have a couple belated cards ready.


The background was made with the Cuttlebug Wax Paper technique and Peacock Feathers distress ink.  Then I stamped the balloons and colored them with markers and stamped the Oops stamp with the distress ink.  I used grey for my neutral contrast because I wanted this to be a little cleaner of a look.

Supplies: Gina K Designs Happy Birthday To You stamp set, Memento and Versafine black inks, Distress Ink Peacock Feathers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Grey Kraft Recollections cardstock.

I would love to play along with the CASology 5-Year Celebration Balloon challenge and StampTV's Inspired by a Video challenge.
