Birthday Whimsy

I have finally been able to make a card for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge - gee it's only Tuesday! For this challenge I wanted to make something with the FREE Sale-a-bration sets and I chose Birthday Whimsy. This is a fun set! I couldn't decide between the presents or the balloons, but the gifts won out in the end. I made a swap with this color scheme for the 2005 SU convention and I love these colors together - pumkpin pie, bashful blue, real red, and certainly celery. I think I got the idea from a Stampin' Success. Anyway... I scalloped the pumpin pie background with my corner rounder and added certainly celery prints paper and bashful blue stitched grosgrain (retired). The background stamp is Polka Dot and I stamped each gift on whisper white cardstock and then again in versamark on the colored cardstock, clear embossed them, and popped them up with stampin dimensionals. Fun little birthday card that is bright and cheery I'd say. I think this one will be for my nephew who turns the magical age of 5 tomorrow. Sweetie. The house is quiet, so I think I'll steal away to read for bit. ahhhh.... Thanks for stopping by!
