One of my co-workers/friends birthday is coming up this week and I just couldn't wait to make a card for her. I love surprising these ladies with fun cards and they don't ever expect them. 

I used the challenge over at Seize the Birthday for her card and am pretty happy with how it turned out.  What I love about this challenge site is that the challenge is always birthday.  With "toppings" added in if you so choose to do it.

This weeks "topping" is a sketch.  I haven't seen them do a sketch before so I had to do it lol.

I recently purchased some new stamps for Stampin' Up! and thought that their new set Balloon Bash  was perfect.  The larger sentiment stamp is so my sense of humor that I had to use it on the inside.

This is the inside. 
SS: balloon bash
INK: night of navy, bermuda bay, mossy mellow, tangelo twist, calypso coral, crushed curry markers, mossy mellow & crushed curry ink pads
CS: bermuda bay, crushed curry, mossy mellow, calypso coral, whisper white, birthday bash dsp
ACCESS: angled tag punch, bermuda bay taffeta ribbon


  1. Diana, We have not done a topping option as a sketch before...thanks for noticing. However, when this blog was first started it was a sketch challenge blog for Birthdays. The topping are something I added recently. Super card! I love putting tags on cards and I know your friend is going to love it. Thanks for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday! We sure appreciate it!

  2. I love the DSP you used - it's one of my new favs! Great birthday card - the tag was perfect for our sketch! So glad you joined us for our "Sketch" topping, at Seize the Birthday!
