Clean and Simple Birthday Balloon

Posted by on August 17, 2014

LeAnne has a great Clean and Simple challenge for us this week over at The Paper Players, to make a birthday card for a child.


When I saw this challenge, the first thing that popped into my mind was this great balloon card that my friend Sara made recently. I wanted to try one, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Simple Balloon card by Yapha

Stamps: Bravo
Ink: Coastal Cabana
Paper: Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Other: Oval Framelits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine

I hope you’ll come and play with The Paper Players this week!
