Happy Happy Birthday

Greeting Blogging Friends,
Wow - I feel like it's been forever since I've posted here.  This has been a very crazy month for me.  and will be continue to be quite busy for at least the next 2 weeks.  My son is graduating high school.  So much to do, so much to prepare, as we celebrate with a huge party etc.  So proud of his accomplishments.  =)

Okay, soooo, today I have a card that I started a while ago actually, but never got around to actually finishing it,  this week, I put some finishing touches on it, and used it for the new challenge over at Elphine House Australia's challenge blog.  The theme this week is "Birthdays" so it couldn't have worked out more perfectly.  =)

For this one, I've used "Sophies Birthday Balloon" stamp, which can be found in the Elphine House Australia, online shop.

I colored (to match the colors of the card) , and hand cut the flower pieces.  (No punches used there) Kind of the long way to do things, but I really liked the flower shape, so I just Had to do it.  LOL The die cut balloon border is from Whimsy Stamps... I adore this border, and even though I've had this since it was released a month or two ago, it's the first I've gotten the chance to use it.  Just Love It. My darling stamp was colored with both Copics, and Prisma colored pencils....  Colors are listed below. Challenges I've entered:   Copic Markers;Skin - E00, E11, R43
Hair - E50, E29, E51
Clothing - BG10, YG41, BG32
Balloon - R85 Prisma Colored Pencils:909-Grass Green, 925-Crimson Lake, 935-Black
