Patterned Party on Parade...

Poppy Parade, that is.  My most favorite of the in-colors that will be retiring come May31st.  Now is the time to stock up on all those favorites, because Stampin'Up! seems to be changing a whole lot with this new catalog release.  If you haven't seen the lists of retiring stamps and accessories, you better check them out now!

I don't know about you, but I'm always in need of a gender neutral birthday card.  It's easy to come up with flowery, glittery, girly looking cards, and sometimes the 'manly' cards are just too much manly for me.  I like a nice, bright, birthday wish that could be appropriate for anyone celebrating any age.  Poppy Parade is my go to starter color when I want bright.  I looked to the Just Add Cake designer series paper for guidance with the rest of my color scheme.

Just Add Cake dsp cut out with the 1/2" circle punch, adhered with a dimensional
Crystal Effects on the Pacific Point balloon to give it a little dimension.  Be sure to let this dry for quite a while!

Baker's Tips:
I stamped the balloon image on the reverse side of a piece of dsp to cut out the correct size for the oval shaped balloon.  Also, I used the fine tip of the Basic Gray marker to create the 1/4" border around my white card stock.  Use a straight edge and the grid paper to keep an even border.
