(Although, with the help of My Paper Pumpkin, I've been getting better, but that's a subject for another day.)
Well, I finally have a birthday card on hand for the next birthday. I created this cute little card with the "Sweet Stack" stamp set, the Cutie Pie Thinlit Dies and the Brights Sequin Assortments.
To make my Balloon Bunch, I glued my balloons (no glue on the little "ties") on Whisper White cardstock. I then sewed Metallic thread around their "ties", then out from underneath and down. I doubled my thread twice (4 threads) for thickness.
For more colour, I added in the confetti of Sequins! I added a rhinestone to the center of each one for lots of sparkle!
To fancy up my background, just a little, I used the Basic Black DSP from the "Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP". Love this stuff!
