My new favorite color combination is this year’s In Color Lemon Lime Twist and an old favorite Marina Mist.  I just added Smoky Slate to make the background for this fun birthday card.

I used the circle image from the Wood Words stamp set (#143928). I needed a small stamp to fill in some of the spaces so I used the small stamp of open circles from Oh So Eclectic (#143940)

Once I was happy with the background, I cut out the Happy Birthday thinlit from the center of the card.  I also cut it out of Lemon Lime Twist five times and once out of Marina Mist card stock. I stacked them all on top of each other and staggered the top layers ever so slightly so the lower colors showed beneath.

I punched balloons from the two main colors using the Balloon Bouquet punch and tied Old Olive Baker’s Twine for the strings on the balloons.

I also finished the balloons off with Wink of Stella to give them all a little shine.

I stamped the inside with the same circles to coordinate with the front of the card.

I think this card could easily be used for either a masculine or feminine birthday or even a kid’s birthday.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope to see you back soon!
