Birthday Balloons Card (LMMS Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this square, CAS (clean and simple), Birthday Balloons Card. :o)

I made this card for my nephew Anej, my cousin's son, who celebrated his 5th birthday on Saturday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANEJ!!!   I'm soooo late with this card... I'm sure he won't mind. It's never too late for good wishes. :o)

To make this card, I was inspired with a card I shared a week ago, Robot Birthday Card. I went with similar design, same color scheme, same sentiment... I used different images, layout, card dimensions are different...

I used an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Celebrate Balloons' rubber stampstamped the image on a thick white watercolor paper, colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks and fussy cut it out, leaving thin border around the image. Then I glued the image on a 2 mm thick foam sheet scrap and fussy cut it again.

Then I stamped a sentiment on a white top panel. I used Create a Smile 'Mini Birthday' stamp set.

drew a line frame with black fine liner to make my CAS card more interesting. To do so, I was inspired with STUNNING work by Faye Wynn-Jones of Stampin Fluffnstuff. Be sure to visit her blog, her coloring skills and stunning CAS designs will blow you away. Thank you for the inspiration Faye!! :o)

Lastly, I glued a 1 mm thick foam sheet square on the panel, glued it on a top folded square card base, glued the image on the card, embellished the card with two enamel dots and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 102 mm x 102 mm (4" x 4")
