Over to my card, I use distress ink and a stencil to make the background, then I colored the balloon with distress ink as well. When I was starting out with paper crafting I didn’t have so many craft supplies as I do now, and I used to color everything with distress ink and a sponge. I think you can get a really good result with a limited stash of craft supplies. …But why risk it, right? :- ) I used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp as my balloon string. I have had my eye on this stamp set for a while but it has always been out of stock when I bought thing from Simon Says Stamp, but now I finally have this set in my stash! I resist my urge to use my Wink Of Stella on the balloons, I love that pen and tend to use it on everything…… I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the card, but I stamped Happy Birthday with the handwritten borders stamp ( same as the Hello on the outside ) to tie everything together.

Thanks for stopping by and we would love if you came over and played with us over at Addicted to CAS!!
