Happy Happy Birthday

Hello creative friends.  Another snowy day so I am playing with bright colors.  Have you ever worked on something until you just give in to what you have?  That's how I feel about this card, and I'm still not crazy about it, but it is time to give it a rest!  I just love the Pattern Alphabet stamp set. It is an oldie but a goodie.  I cut the smaller balloons with a Sizzix die but had to shorten them by hand cutting.  I also clear embossed the balloons for a little shine.  My card today is for the current birthday challenge at Hero Arts.

Paper:  HA card, color-aid and scraps
Ink:  Versafine and Top Boss
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Dies/Punches:  Sizzix
Other:  Clear embossing powder, pop dots and Twinery twine


  1. I just saw this on Flickr and what a happy card! Love the bright balloons, Nancy! Hope you are well! Hugs! ♥

  2. Those letters are really cool! Bright & cheery card--brings a smile with such a harsh winter.

  3. What a fun way to spell out the letters Nancy.

    Hugs diane
