Birthday Balloon CTD364

Lately I've been neglecting some of my slightly older stamps and dies. The ColorThrowdown challenge this week is aqua, lime green and coral and this DSP - Birthday Bash, from earlier this year in the Occasions Catalogue, is in those tones, if a little bolder than the sample. Hopefully the Crushed Curry won't disqualify me from the challenge. The Balloon Framelits Dies were introduced in January 2015 along with Celebrate Today, and I have made a lot of cards using them. Now that I have pulled them out again, I might get another batch of cards done using this theme. Celebrate Today has 17 stamps and includes a great variety of sentiments including 'birthday'.

I've decorated the inside too, using the same delightful DSP and a stamp which seems to 'echo' the die cut happy perfectly. "You can never have too much happy" is from Yippee-Skippee, which retired this year, but will stay on my shelf for a while longer.

Thanks for reading my blog
