Happy Birthday Balloons

Hosting this weeks Challenge at
is Cheryl and it is TREND  WEEK.
and she chose a popular trend at present

I have hot air balloon stamps but there wasn't
anything I could find that I thought suitable in my stash
balloon wise and I wanted to use the birthday kind
so I put out an SOS to my crafty friends
who I knew had some dies and asked them to cut some for me.
Well I received 2 envelopes full of different shapes and sizes.
Of course I went straight away to play with some...
okay I used just a few but liked the big balloons
so got out an old Cuttlebug Alphabet Die Set
and added the HAPPY to them.
Pretty easy eh? and then popped them onto
some iridescent shimmery paper.
Added some string to the balloons, a few random
sequins and gemstones and the big
birthday stamp from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps
heat embossed in gold to finish.

Pop over to our BLOG
and check out what our Guest Melissa
and Jugheads have made.

Thanks for dropping by
