Seize the Birthday!
Anything That Flies!

Trying to get in a few last minute challenges.  This one is for Seize The Birthday.  They're looking for Anything that Flies on a Birthday Card!  I love this negative balloon die from Serendipity Stamps.
The background is a sheet of water color paper that I created using a smooshing technique.  I've taken a few classes on Craftsy and am trying some of the different techniques I've seen there.   I topped the watercolor paper with a die cut piece of card stock, stamped the sentiment and that's all she wrote!  
 I love all the bright bold color peeking through.  And the hardest part?  Waiting for it to dry!   No patience here!  And seriously a miracle that I didn't set something on it while it was drying.  My craft space looks like a tornado went through lately!
 If you want to play along at Seize the Birthday you better hurry!!   Have  a great day!!

I love this card and really want to make one similar. What is the name of the die and was wondering where you found it. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card.

Doing a "Jeanne Gallery Walk" before my solo supper (my husband stayed behind when we went to see my family this weekend; he's one of the officials for the pro-cycling Tour of Alberta race). My apologies for falling behind in commenting, but looking forward to the 'exclusively you' re-views of your amazing creativity. Your smooshed backgrounds, peeking through the fabulous balloon dies: oh my! I believe I've fallen in love!!
