I’m very happy to be Guest Designing for Just Us Girls for the month of September! This is my second postĀ  as JUGS’ GD this month. I hope that you enjoy the DT cards, along with mine, and are inspired to play along. šŸ™‚

IMG_0275editedI used PTI’s Polka Dot basics II and my NBUS SU Celebrate Today stamp sets to make this card. I also used an Avery Elles’ Pinked rectangle die and the balloon die is from SU. I’m going to play along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #200 Let’s Celebrate, Darnell’s NBUS Challenge #5, SSS Monday’s Stamp And Punch/Die Cut and SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says STAMPtemberĀ® Use A Stamp Challenge And Blog Hop.

IMG_0278editedI did some ink-blending on the balloon on this fun and bright birthday card.Ā  All paper and ink are Stampin’ Up, with the exception on the black ink which is VersaFine. I also used a Uni-ball Signo white gel pen to do some tracing and highlighting and a gold one to add some sparkle to the stamped confetti image on the balloon. I finished it off with a little gold enamel dot from PTI’s Make it Market : Garden Gild Set and some SU! gold thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
