Birthday Blog Hop

For my 365 Sketchy Sunday post, scroll down!

Hi!
Although I'm out of town at the moment I wanted to let you all know about the Denami Birthday Blog Hop happening today!
I'm the LAST STOP on the hop, so if you made it this far I applaud you!

You should have arrived from Kate's blog, but if you are interested in potentially winning a $20 Gift Certificate to the Denami store, then start at the beginning on the Denami Blog and leave  a comment at each stop along the way
.


I kept my card CAS (Clean and sophisticated) because sometimes it just makes a bold statement. And the awesome Brushed Balloon stamp (which happens to be on sale right now;) is perfect for those times when you really want to be bold
I stamped several patterns on top of each balloon using the new border cling stamps that Denami is now carrying. I used the Decorative and Retro sets, and finished the front off with the bold calligraphy sentiment too!

The best thing about this easy but fun card, is that the colors can easily be changed for any person, male or female, in any age group too!

I hope you enjoyed this Denami Birthday Hop and found lots of inspiration for your upcoming birthday cards. Be sure to leave a comment because not one, but TWO lucky commenters will win a $20 Gift Certificate from Denami!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

Dana, your card is just perfect to make someone's birthday very happy. Your bright balloons hanging over the edge all decked out using the border stamps is ingenius. Sure hope I win a GC as I can see lots of DeNami stamps I'd like to add to my stamp room! (Looks like Kate missed the Blog Hop!) Great card to finish off the Blog Hop!
