Happy Birthday

 Good Sunday morning all!  After a little bit of a rummage through my background stash pile, I found some leftover pieces of pixied card that were just large enough to use for today's card.  I used the Birthday Balloons die and cut three large balloons out of three pieces of pixied card (they used both Midnight Blue and Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powders).  I used the strings from the Dotty Balloon die set and added them to each of the balloons.  I cut the Lattice Background in white and backed it with a piece of white card.  I used the Round Corner Squares and created a multi-layered frame with a wide white base and a very thin white frame on top.  I attached the three balloons across the background with mounting foam, then added the sentiments.  I cut the Make A Wish, Happy Birthday and Best Day Ever to the balloons all cut in black.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

Oh that feeling when your scrap stash gives you enough to make a card like that! How satisfying. Balloons are always a winner and when they’re as gorgeous and Pixied like that, you just can’t go wrong x

Hi Sue. What a great way to use up all those little scraps of card that we all collect. Love the lattice background.

I must remember to rummage through my cut pieces rather than continually cutting new ones. Same goes for using up pieces from my scrap box. WakeyL
