Fun Birthday Card

This card just screams "fun" to me.

I was just dying to use a set I just got from Close to My Heart called Polka Dot Alphabet.  It's been on my wishlist for a long time and I decided it needed to come live with me :)

All of the inks I used are from Stampin' Up.  Rose Red, Only Orange, Summer Sun, Glorious Green, Ballet Blue, and Elegant Eggplant.  

I started everything with the sentiment.  I actually stamped the word "birthday" first.  It's from the Close to My Heart set It's Your Day.  After "birthday" was in place I started working on "happy."  I started with the letter "y" and worked inward to help with placement.  The letters stamped beautifully.

Next I moved on to the balloons.  They are from a Stampin' Up set called Party This Way.  I started with the blue one and then masked it off to stamp the other 2.  After they were all stamped I went around with one of my Copic Multiliners to create a black outline for them.  Then I used another Copic Multiliner that is very thin to hand draw the little strings.

For a finishing touch I decided to add a whole bunch of little rhinestones.  They are all from Irock.

Have a crafty day!
