Tonight I am sharing the card I made for my husband’s birthday. I used my Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today stamp set and coordinating Balloon framelits to create it. I used the current sketch at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration for the card layout.


2016 Card 60 - Mike bday SU Celebrate Today


My color combo from the list I made up is Calypso Coral (my favorite!!), So Saffron and Island Indigo.  I added Smoky Slate as a neutral for the embellishments.  I really like how these colors look together.  Since I didn’t have to mail the card, I was able to pop up the balloon, add some thick baker’s twine and a few buttons.


Here is the sketch~
