Sparkle & Shine

There's a lot of sparkle & shine on this card, but unless you are holding it in your hand, you might miss it. So -- 

1. Stamped balloons from Everyday Doodles. Designed by Julie Ebersole, and since she is a fun stamper, it makes sense that this is such a fun set.

2. Paid attention to some design rules here -- color sets are in triangle pattern and there is an odd number of balloons. 

3. Covered the balloons with Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze, which DOES NOT CLOG.  100% recommend this product. Let it dry.

4. Added a sentiment from Label Love, from Altenew. 

5. Adhered a bunch of teeny tiny stars (not sure who makes them but I bought them on Amazon a long time ago).  I dotted the card with glue and then threw a bunch of stars on the card and waited to see what stuck! 

MOOD WHEN DONE: Can't Remember!  Made this a few months ago! 

I think I would like this card better if I hadn't trimmed the balloon panel and popped it up on gray cardstock. But it's still a fun card.

Well, Dallas is a dumpster fire now with respect to Covid-19, but never fear -- my fingers can still do online shopping! Hope you are all well.

As much fun as IG is, one cannot easily get a closeup … this is much better... though I didn't need to 'enbiggen' to see all the fun this could cause, Joan. One might not hate having another birthday with a darling card such as yours!
LOve all the sparkle, and those fabulous glossy-fied balloons!

Love the gloss on the balloons but even more the scattering of the stars!! I'll have to try that technique. 😉
