Birthday Balloons

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 many adorable cards!

Wonderful design! It's so good to know that not everything you try turns out the way you imagined or want and sometimes you have to go with plan B. Makes me feel better about my own projects! Thanks for all you've shared!
