Like with many occasions the hype of such events always seems to lead to a downer and feeling blue. This time of year it's the Winter Blues and to get me out of my post festive downer and instead of resorting to chocolate & not wanting to break my healthy living intentions I decided to try and get creative and made this card for my Nephews upcoming birthday next week...
Good old Background Builders: Round In Circles came to the rescue again for this 'boy' card! This time I paired it with the solid balloon from Label Love: Birthday and a mix of sentiments which are listed below in the supplies.
The new "Less is More" challenge HERE helped with the colour choices for this card. The challenge is titled Winter Blues and to use shades of blue. I used 3 shades of blue on my card all from SU! The rows of open polka dots were stamped first in Bashful Blue then the birthday and balloon in Pacific Point and finally the happy and grunge circles in Marina Mist. The balloon string was hand drawn using the SU! markers and a ruler. A good dose of glitter to the balloon finished the card off.
That's all from me today, I am going to try and make another card before it's time to get the tea on. I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by :)
