Happy Birthday

I needed (and was delighted) to make a birthday card for one of my SU Club sisters. My SU enabler lives just down the block from me, a nice two minute walk. She has SU club, SU Camp and Birthday Club in which there are a dozen or more regulars. There are eight ladies in our SU club group and we have been together for two, maybe three years now.
Our birthday cards are suppose to be 100% SU. Well, this month I fudged and used this darling digi stamp from From the Heart Stamps Free digi of the month challenge. Click here for more information on this fun challenge.




The patterned paper is from the Birthday Basics Designer Series. The colors I have used are So Saffron, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple. The sentiment is from SU Bring on the Cake stamp set. After coloring the letters with the pens, I shinned them up by using clear embossing powder. The digi is Balloon Ride and just seemed perfect for a birthday card. I printed the digi several times, then cut out the balloons and glued them on. Some of them are layered to give some depth to the balloon bouquet. Thanks Faith for this darling image.
I hope Cynthia likes her card and the confetti I tucked inside. Shhh, don't tell her, I want her to be surprised. 
Thanks for stopping by. Please take extra care this holiday season.
