More Happy Birthday

Well, I was so disappointed about missing the mark with the Color Throwdown #250 colors, I had to try again, this time using CASE This Sketch #36.  I am also submitting this into the Clearly Besotted Challenge #2 for ‘Seeing Spots’, and also Seize the Birthday’s Anything Goes Birthday Challenge.  Four challenges in one pop – Wow!  Write that down.

Stephanie originally sent me 4 stamp sets to use during my guest DT spot last week, but she ended up using one of the sets for the June release instead.  So even though it wasn’t part of the release for which I was participating, I wanted to use some of the stamps from that set – Make A Wish – to give them a little more exposure. 😉

Aren’t those polka-dot balloons too cute?!  I’ve tried over the past few months to find some balloon stamps that suit my style, and the balloons in this stamp set definitely suit my style.  This card has polka-dot balloons, a polka-dot-impressed background, spots around the scallop circle, and some sparkly bling spots.

And some STRIPES in the middle – Haha!
