Stamplorations 2nd Birthday!

Stamplorations is a fantastic blog and a fantastic online store and they are celebrating their second birthday and this is my card to join in the fun!  The sentiment on the front of this is 'Enjoy' so the card could be for any occasion and for either sex although I suddenly remembered a friends birthday which is tomorrow and used it for that.  The sentiment inside is 'your Birthday'.



The kingfisher is from Stamplorations set Small Birds and the word 'Enjoy' is from their Trendy Butterflies set.  The little shapes round the balloon are Winnie and Walter - Big Bang Confetti and the balloon is made using a Clearly Besotted Die.  All the colouring (masked strip, kingfisher and balloon are Distress inks with the words and outline of the Kingfisher with Colbolt Archival.  The Distress colours are Fired Brick, Mermaid Lagoon and Scattered Straw.  I added clear Wink of Stella and Glimmer Mist for a bit of sparkle.  The string is a little off cut I had floating about.

I would like to enter this into the Stamplorations 2nd Anniversary Linky Party - Below is the Mood Board we had for inspiration.  Stamplorations has had a blog hop this last week too which was awesome!



I would also like to enter this into the Stamplorations Anything Goes Challenge.



You must pop over to pay them a visit - the blog and store are both awesome!

Thank you so much for visiting me - I am trying hard to blog and craft a bit more regularly!  Take care.  Luv Chris xxx

Wonderful card, Chris, that works for any occasion that calls for a celebration! (Must remember to make cards like yours in bulk and put in stash for those times I forget a birthday or an anniversary or whatever!) So glad to see your lovely card in the STAMPlorations gallery and thank you so much for celebrating our 2nd birthday with us -- it's much, much appreciated, and makes it all the more fun! Hugs!!!
