I think the birds are as happy as I am.  This morning, I had to take my daughter to school early for a rehearsal. Though it was raining a bit when I got home, the birds were chirping up a storm!  Not the usual pre-sunrise songs, but more the sound of a crowded room where everyone is talking at once.  I’m pretty sure they were all saying, “Yay! it’s going to be warmer today.”

While having my morning chat with my brother, I also got busy creating.  Today, I’ve combined the Mojo393 sketch and PP240 color challenge with Balloon Bash.

Balloon Bash for Mojo393 and PP240 from theartfulinker.com

The colors for the challenge were Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding.  Though I’ve used all of these colors the last couple years, this might be the first time that I’ve combined them.

Most of the layers are embossed to add variety and visual interest. Then, the “celebrate” banner was stamped a second time, cut out and layered to create additional dimension.

It’s a fun, bright card for somebody’s birthday.
