Retro Birthday Balloons...

Hello all!

It's time for another Friday Mashup challenge, and this week Holly is bringing the birthday cake!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with a "Birthday Theme".
  2. Or Make a project using "Brads".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Birthday project with some brads".

I went with a birthday card that would work for a boy (not a forte of mine but I'm really happy with how this one turned out)...

I used the You're Amazing stamp set for the balloons and sentiment, and combined some International Bazaar and Twitterpated dsp for the lower panels. I added some Daffodil Delight brads to the sentiment panel (die-cut with one of the Apothecary framelits dies and pierced with the coordinating template). I used the Paper Players colours as well as the Retro sketch this week to help me out...

Make sure you check out what the rest of the Friday Mashup team have created this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
