I was looking at new stamps and dies by Simon Says Stamps and they had a blog hop. So, I checked out all the great, great cards that were made using new items. I came across a card on Amy Rysavy's blog (part of the blog hop) that I had to recreate and here it is. I used Lawn Fawn Balloon dies for the background and SU's "happy" die and the Cottage Greetings stamp set for the "birthday". Together with markers and sponges I inked everything. The new Occasions mini (live on January 4th) had a couple of balloon punches which I already ordered! With those punches, we will be making this card at the next card class I like it so much! The sequins are a great finishing touch and I was very happy to have a nice collection of sequins to coordinate with the ink colors. Have a great day!
