Birthday card, anyone?

Hi!  It's me again with another card for you!

Wouldn't it be nice if you always had a stash of birthday cards ready to send?  Well, you can accomplish this task very easily if you have this stamp set handy.  It's called Balloon Celebration and you can see it on page 12 of the Occasions Catalog.

Here's the card we made with this set at a stamping party last Sunday...

Balloons make a great birthday card for anyone and everyone!  You can make the card look feminine if you use Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, and other soft colors.  For a child, use colors from the Brights Collection of colors, such as Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay.  For a more masculine look, use a few colors from the Regals Collection, such as Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler.  You can't go wrong if you use colors from one collection, as each color collection features colors that look good together.  For this fun card, I used the background from You've Got This (page 113 of the annual catalog). I stamped it in Soft Sky, then added the balloon strings in Basic Black.  Then it was super easy to place a balloon at the end of each string. I tied some ribbon in a knot and added it to the balloon strings with a glue dot.  The sentiments in this set are done in a very fun font, which just adds to the appeal of the card. 
I've got a lot to accomplish, so I've got to run.  May you have a wonderful Easter with family and friends and I'll hope to see you back here at The Classic Card on Monday.
Hugs and happiness,
