Banners, Balloons & Bling, Oh My!!

I was inspired to make today's card for 2 reasons; the Designed To Color Sketch Challenge & Saturated Canary's B's Challenge.

I colored in "Ellie's Birthday" by Saturated Canary, quite a few weeks ago (I'll even say months ago), and didn't know how or what I'd use her for, until today.  The theme they asked for in the challenge was "B's".  Use anything that starts with the letter B, so here's the list I came up with: 1. Banners, 2. Birthday, 3. Balloons, 4. Bling, 5. Black hair and 6. Boots.
(The last 2 might be stretching my luck a bit, lol).

I used copic markers, Cosmo Cricket "Clementine" paper, Recollections bling, a $1 Michael's banner stamp and a Recollections sentiment stamp, red glitter glue, rock candy stickles, Spellbinders dies and a Stampin' Up oval punch to create this birthday card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Ahh, the perfect combination for parties and celebrations. Banners I think is the most important one next to balloons and the party idea itself. But when you put everything together it creates something much more beautiful.
