So this month for our 
Inspire, Create Share Blog Hop 
we are featuring birthday treats! One of our wonderful Stampin' Up! "gurus" and trainers, Shannon West, has started a movement called #imbringingbirthdaysback!  She feels that with all the social media messages, we've forgotten about sending cards.  So she's determined to get back to it and send birthday cards to everyone! She even created a stamp to go with the occasion!!!  Well, we are hopping on her wagon!!! Happy birthday y'all!!!

Here's my card this month:

I think birthdays should be fun!!! So this card is bright & cheery & fun!!!  
I love this Cherries on Top DSP! It's so bright, and it features some of the 
'15-'17 In-Colors!  I love that Watermelon Wonder & Cucumber Crush!!!  These balloons just shout "happy birthday"!!!!

The stamp set is the popular Balloon Celebration-found in the Occasions Catalog! It's such a versatile little set! Balloons can be used for any occasion! I've used them on birthday cards, new baby cards, graduation cards, and even a congratulations card! They work great with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. Perfect coordination there!

The Oval Framelits made the cuts in the center. I like the "framed" look. Here I used the Soft Sky-for obvious reasons-and heat embossed with 
White Stampin' Emboss powder using the cloud stamps from the stamp set! 

The bling on the balloons is some Dazzling Details! I still go for some easy bling on every card!!! lol

The pretty bow is from the Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim! That lace is beautiful! I though it was just the right touch here!

So hope you enjoyed! Now go hop around & see what our coast-to-coast blog hop has to share! Claudia is next!!! Either click on her name or the picture below & you will go right to here blog!
