Seize the Birthday with Balloons!


Happy Thursday and welcome to the latest Seize the Birthday challenge! Our topping inspiration for you for the next two weeks is  πŸŽˆBALLOONS!🎈 As always, if the topping doesn't immediately inspire you, we would love to see any birthday card you make.



My card features just one balloon, but I think it still counts: 


To think I hadn't put the bird on top of the hippo's head before! He fits perfectly, and with the balloon gives a nice flow to the images. They are all coloured with Copics, with a generous coating of sparkle on the balloon. I even captured a hint of it in the close up below: 


This is our first Seize the Birthday post for May, which means a new surprise party guest, Linda! Please welcome her to the party as you admire all the inspiration the team has provided for you. 

Supplies: Neenah white & Stampin' Up bashful blue cardstock, Essentials by Ellen Wish Big stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Wow clear gloss embossing powder, Copic markers, Wink of Stella clear sparkle pen, Gelly Roll white gel pen, Itoya finepoint marker, fun foam

Pin It Now!

Love this toppings theme! What a great card, Lindsey. That bird was made to sit on the hippos head. Must try and play along with this one, Jo x

Super cute, I always love a good punny card!!! I also love how you have the balloon hanging off the panel. Brilliant idea.

Linda said...

Too adorable, Lindsey. That sweet little birdie standing on the hippo's head.
Thanks for having me as the GD for the next couple of months.

Of course, one balloon qualifies. I love your CAS take on this challenge. Your cards are simply pleasing and stunning at the same time.

Perfect card! Love the bright red balloon! The hippo and birdie make up the perfect companions, and opportunity for the perfect sentiment. Love it!

This is brilliant! I love the pop of *red* and how you did the balloon cut around. Wonderful as always my friend.

You only need one balloon for a party! Especially a sparkly one ;)
