Very Happy Birthday

Hello there and thank you for stopping by today. There are only 2 days left of the MFT July Release Countdown. The new releases can be yours on July 8 at 10 PM EST. Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day.

My card today uses the new Balloon STAX Die-namics, which I cannot get enough of. They are SO fun and versatile. I wanted to create an inlaid design using several of the balloon sizes and shapes. They work so well together because there are multiple shapes included. The largest is a silver mylar balloon, and the rest of the bouquet was decorated with various pattern stamps from the Delicious Birthday stamp set, Diagonal Stripes Background, and Happy Birthday Background. The sentiment is from Delicious Birthday and I hand-drew the balloon strings on each balloon. 

Confession: I made this card twice because toward the end of the first round I ripped the white layer. A tantrum ensued which included me ripping up the card. Patience prevailed and I remade it because I *really* liked it. 




These products and many more will be available for purchase in just TWO days, on July 8 at 10 PM EST.  Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with today.
