My husband's birthday was last week, and he likes bright colors. I could hand him a card with just a bunch of bright colors scribbled on it and he would be happy, but I made this instead.

Used Mama Elephant's Celebration Balloons (stamps and dies), Copics, and patterned paper.
Masked the balloons and added the strings.
Die cut the "Hurray" 4 times and adhered the words on top of one another.

There was a bit too much white space so I added some clear gems. If I had colored gems I would have used those, but you use what you have (until you get what you need!).


A friend from DC is visiting this week. I am so excited!!  Hope you have a great week.


  1. What a wonderfully bright and happy card!You couldn't help but smile upon removal from the envelope. I have colored some clear gems with sharpies when I didn't have the right color. Some seem to take it better than others. Wishing you and your friend a great visit!
