Hi! Happy Monday! It's that time for another Bitten By the Bug Challenge. This week's challenge was to create a birthday card featuring balloons. I created my card using a fun polka dot background paper overlapped by a cloud grid paper. I tore a strip of green cardstock for the "grass" at the bottom. The girl and the balloons are cut from the Sweethearts cartridge. I gave the girl a cute plaid dress and matching headband with brown heels. The balloons are cut from glittery orange cardstock and attached with foam dots. I attached baker's twine to all the balloons and tied them together. I let them fly off the edge of the card like they are flying away! I think this accomplished a sense of movement. I laid down a strip of glue and sprinkled blue and purple glitter flowers to the very bottom of the card. I attached a punch out to the twine and the happy birthday sentiment with foam dots. When I first began creating the card, I used a totally different background paper in place of the cloud paper. The colors were great, but it was too busy. I'm glad I changed it out and used the cloud paper. I totally wish I had a cute plaid dress like hers too! LOL Check out the other designers' creations and play along at BBTB2! Have a lovely spring week!
