Seize The Birthday - Balloons


We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, and our theme is Balloons.  I went with the balloon stencil by Neat & Tangled, and a sentiment from Altenew.   I used Distress inks in masculine shades to sponge the balloons, and added strings with with a fineliner.  I'm always short of masculine cards - must make more!

Our surprise party guest is Linda Snodgrass - pop on over and give her some bloggy love, and don't forget to take a look at the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team.  Then all that's left is for you to play along with us!
