Playing along with Freshly Made Sketches and Can You Case It

Hello and welcome back! Today's card was inspired by the challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and Can You Case It. FMS#271 is a sketch challenge and CYCI#144 is a color challenge. 

I'm trying to get caught up on my birthday cards, since I'm planning to do #imbringingbirthdaysback for a second year. Last year I mailed 230 cards, 112 of which were birthday cards. I don't think I'm going to beat that this year, but I want to make an effort. Here's today's card:

I've got several sets from the new Occasions catalog and most of them have not been inked yet, so I thought I'd start with this one. It's a pretty simple card, but those Balloon framelits really make it pop.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!


Supplies used:

Stamp set: Balloon Adventures
Paper: Whisper White Thick Cardstock; Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, and Watermelon Wonder cardstock
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder, Smoky Slate
Tools: Balloon Pop-up Thinlits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Fine-Tip Glue Pen, Tombow Multi Liquid Glue, SNAIL, Stampin' Dimensionals
