Today I'm sharing a festive birthday card I created for the July 1 - Celebrate challenge over at Curtain Call.
I love this month's inspiration photo! The glitter on those balloons is over the top fabulous!

I had a bit of a challenge with this card. At first I tried to use the balloons from Reverse Confetti's Monkey Business stamps and Confetti Cuts, but I was Copic challenged and just couldn't color those balloons without getting smudges outside the lines. For my second try I thought I'd use the Scallops 'n Circles Confetti Cuts set to make round circles balloons that I added glitter to. But what a mess! There was glitter everywhere and the balloons looked terrible! lol
For my third try I die cut more pre-glittered card stock for the bottoms of the balloons. Finally...that worked! I love how these chubby round balloons look!
Then I used the same glitter card stock for the sentiment.
What do you think? Like? Fun? Hope you have a chance to play along with me and the gals at Curtain Call. I really like all the entries for this challenge...so many adorable cards!
