Hello Everyone,
I hope this finds you all well & happy! I was asked to make a Birthday card for a girl turning 19, well I always seem to stumble a little with the teen cards, does anyone else have this problem? This time I am very happy and I really hope the recipient will be too.
 I started with the balloons stencil and distress ink, using evergreen bough very lightly and then some peacock feathers at the bottom and edges, then spun sugar and picked raspberry with the same technique for the other balloon. I stamped the strings & small sentiment in London fog Memento ink.
For the die cut word Happy and my stitched frame, I blended  the distress inks on white cardstock and cut them out. I die cut some little stars and the tails top & bottom from some American crafts silver glitter paper, I then used the other stencil in the set to do some pink diagonal stripes for two of the corners.
They are also featuring Hero Art products, and that's where my inside sentiment is from
I also added a little label on the other side to finish the card off
I almost forgot, I added some clear wink of stellar glitter pen to the word Happy on the front and 19 today words.
