I made this card for a friend who's birthday was this past Saturday. The card base is Recollections A2 cards. The patterned paper is a part of Bo Bunny 12" Serenity Dot. I tried to make the card look masculine so I didn't put much on the card and the paper is busy enough. I decided to use Stampabilities Happy Happy Happy Birthday stamp and Unity Absolutely Priceless Simple Stories Itty Bitty- hot air balloon stamp on a piece of American Crafts Seuss double sided 12"paper and used Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink on both stamps. His favorite football team is Carolina Panthers so the colors of the hot air balloon fit those colors. He also loves to see the hot air balloons that come over his house around this time of the year. His family doesn't do anything for his birthday and he does so much for them. I make it a point to make him a card every year. I was just a little behind this year. TFL!
