Day 4: Happy Birthday!

Welcome to Day 4 of the collaboration week with Jess.  Check out the original post here if this is your first time stopping by!

Today we are both working with the same theme: birthday. I rarely make birthday cards, so this was great for me. I need to build up my stash!  I wanted to go with something bright and bold.  I also used my Lawn Fawn Admit One stamp set, which has sat uninked for a while.

I stamped the woodgrain background on some kraft and inked the edges a little.  I paper pieced the polaroid, using some Distress Ink to give it the look of a light blue sky.  Next up was stamping the balloon on different color paper and cutting out. And I finished the whole thing with some Thickers.

Be sure to head over to Jess' blog to see what she came up with today! Hard to believe tomorrow is our last day of collaborating :o( I've had such a great time!
