Aud Sentiments Birthday

Hi there,

We are celebrating the 8th birthday of the Aud Sentiments challenge blog this week, so we want to see your birthday themed creations.
I have not been with Aud Sentiments for the full 8 years, but the short time I have been on the design team has been great, and I am so happy to get the opportunity to work with some really great ladies!

You can make any type of project you want for this challenge such as a card, tag, scrapbook layout, altered item, pocket letter, box, etc.  Just make sure you follow the theme and include a sentiment that is appropriate to the theme.

        We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter
I have used the pre-coloured Birthday Present image for my card, along with a background.

When I added the image onto the background the balloon disappeared, but I decided that I would add a 3D balloon instead. So I cut the image straight up against the background, and layered onto a piece of pearlescent pastel green card that I die-cut using an M&C stitched square nesting die. I stamped the sentiment onto the tag area using green Boofle ink. I then used a pretty button for the balloon and then added some sequins as flowers also.
Finally I coloured the sentiment with a Sakura pen, as well as adding the balloon cord with the same pen, and added a lime green bow.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking,

  2. It's a realy lovely card but because you used a pre-coloured image you can't join our challenge at Addicted To Stamps Challengeblog, sorry. Maybe you'll find time to join us with a stamped card?

    1. Oh ok -sorry I thought because I stamped the sentiment it would still be eligible. I will remember for future - main element stamped, or more stamping than just sentiment at least :)

  3. Your card is very sweet and i love your button balloon.
    I think Miranda didn't read your comment on her comment because you can join us with a stamped sentiment, sorry for this misunderstanding.
    Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps.
