Birthday Balloons

 3 challenges inspired today's card...

Global Design Project // #GDP431 ...A theme challenge!!  The theme for this current challenge is BALLOONS!!  In the challenge description, three options where given...balloon, hot air balloon, and word bubbles.  I went the the traditional balloons for my card.

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS431 ...A sketch challenge!!  I used ribbons for the trio of stripes given as a background.  The color combo of this ribbon made for a great masculine themed card.  I picked striped ribbon instead of polk-a-dots...I hope that is okay!?!

{PIN}spirational Challenge // #310 ...A Pinterest inspired challenge!!  This year the focus of the challenge is craft supplies and for February's challenge we are being inspired by a Pinterest photo of ribbons.  RIBBONS!!  I used a brand new spool of stripped ribbon for today's card.


Oh and since I used a brand new spool of ribbon, 
I will be entering it over at the
blog!!  I have had this ribbon for a while but today I cut the plastic off the spool and unwound it for the first time!!
