Red Balloon BD

Here's a bold birthday card for you. I've been wanting to use this set of stamps for a while, I found them on the clearance wall at Hobby Lobby. The challenge at gingham girls adventures
is her Word of the Week #13-limbus: a border distinguished by color or structure. I counting these 2 diagonal strips as structure, and as you can see it kind of looks like I'm on a Prima flower kick. As I sit here posting this and looking at the card it struck me it looks kind of naked and it hit me I didn't use any ribbon or fibers on it. I guess you don't need a bow every time.
3 Challenges:
Supplies: Chocolate Chip 6" X 6" card, Papers: from my stash, Stamps: My Sentiments Exactly! TT239 Word Blocks, Inkadinkado-99538 Birthday Sentiments, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, CTMH marker: black, Prima Flowers, The Paper Studio Spare Parts: button brads, glue dots, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G

Love this card Beverly! The color combo is fab and I heart the sparkly balloon. Those are some perfect limbuses...or limbi...which could it be? And it doesn't look naked in its bow-less state...think of how much easier it will be to envelope up! Thanks so much for playing my WOW challenge!
