Here's my 2nd card tonight for Stamplorations and Curtain Call:
I've had the medallion type stamp for a very long time and as I was pulling out background stamps tonight I decided to use it again. I inked it up with Pink Pirouette. It has an oval shape in the middle and it just looked like a really neat place to put a gold balloon. So I did! I wanted to keep the card fairly simple with that big medallion. So I cut a gold balloon, embossed it with a small dot emboss folder. Then I just layered some black striped vellum behind the stamped panel and cut a small banner from the same vellum. Then I cut my "happy" and "birthday" dies in black and added some gold sequins. Easy peasy!
