Everybody Likes Balloons

So this week over at ala card monkey, the challenge is kid-related. Here's this week's sketch:

It took me a while to come up with an idea, but I started by looking for some background paper that looked "kid-like". Once I saw this paper, it struck me that kids (and adults too) like balloons. So here's what I came up with:

I colored in the balloons and the "Happy Birthday" greeting with markers, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango were the colors that I used. I stamped the images with Soft Suede. I sponged around the circle and the label with Wild Wasabi. Instead of a bow, I let the "strings" from the balloons hang down. I think it would work for kids of all ages.


  1. What a great birthday card! And, you're right, everyone loves balloons! The wonderful bright colours and texture of the background paper just make this card such a delight! TFS Marie.

  2. Your card reminds me of gumballs with all of the great, bright colors! Kids love balloons... and they've been known to bring smiles to adults too. lol Thanks for taking part in our challenge!
