Birthday Balloons for my Brother-in-Law.!

     Now that Easter is over, I finally have a chance to play with my new birthday stamps PTI released in March. I have several birthdays coming up this month.  When I saw the sketch this week for Retrosketches, I knew I would play along.


     Here's the card I made for my brother-in-law based upon the sketch.


     An up close shot of the balloons. I was able to use a variety of scraps I had laying around. I love the touch of red. I think it really makes the card pop. Added some bling to the swirls too!


  CASology's cue card this week is:


  Balloons definietley convey the image of up; besides these balloons are popped up with adhesives. So I decided to add my card to their challenge. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
