Happy Birthday - Yay! FMS171 CMCC56


I like to work on something in my craft room every day, but I've had too much else happening to do that recently. After a while, I start to go a little nutty. I took an hour today to put together a card using the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #171 and colour inspiration from Colour Me: Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Tangelo Twist and Daffodil Delight.

I have several family birthdays coming in the next few weeks, and a couple of friends too, so this card is for a 7 year-old boy. Not too sure if it is quite 'right' for him, but it's a start if I don't think of something else.

I used older Designer Specialty Paper and some lovely new stamps and Framelits from the Occasions Catalogue and SALE-A-BRATION. The tail of the balloon had to be handcut but that was quite easy and there are Framelits and punches for everything else.

I wonder how you clear your head when you have "stamper's block"?


Jenny Engelke @ Colour Me picked my card!
