We have a great, festive, inspiration pic over at Just Add Ink this week, to get the creative juices flowing.  Rochelle came up with these gorgeous images, to inspire us:

Here's what I came up with, using the super-cute Balloon Bash stamp set, and the colours Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Gold:

I wanted the gold confetti to show through the striped balloon, but popped up the middle balloon using Stampin' Dimensionals, so the confetti didn't detract from the wording on the balloon.

As always, the Design Team members at Just Add Ink have come up with some great projects.  You can check out the others' here.

I've listed below all the products used to make this card; if you click on any image, you'll be taken direct to my online store.

  1. Hi Christine! Your card is so festive with the gold confetti and ribbon, and of course the cute balloons. Love those colors together and your card design!

    You have been on a creative tear the last couple weeks, I haven't kept up with all your beautiful creations. Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration, my friend!

  2. Love your confetti! Seems I'm the only one who didn't pull a balloon set out for this challenge, and I went with Crushed Curry rather than gold. Love how we all interpret the same pics so differently. This is such a great, festive birthday card. x

  3. Such a fun and festive birthday card my friend, love the gold confetti and the elements you've incorporated...great use of the inspiration. Xx

  4. Such a bold and happy card Christine! I love how you've used the tag for your greeting, your fun balloons and the fun confetti and gold touches are just gorgeous xx

  5. Hi Christine, That is a very nice card, I love the colours you used, good all rounder card, Cheers Anna.

  6. There are so many fun things to look at here Christine! I love that row of candles along the bottom and the bright pop of your blue balloon at the top. And some gold confetti never goes astray too of course!! xxx

  7. I just adore your card for this week's challenge, so many gorgeous bits and pieces to look at. From the lovely trim and button, to the white embossed sentiment on black - so effective! Love all of the confetti too :)
