Today Luke is going to a birthday party for his "buddy pal" at Preschool. Mommy provided the present, Nana got to do a card.
My "buddy pal" Ruthann let me use her Crazy for Cupcakes set. I can't believe I never bought this set. It's great! I think it will be in my next order even though she has graciously told me to use it as long as I want!
I inked the balloons and strings (don't you just love those strings?) with markers and colored the balloons in with the markers, smoothing with a blender pen.
I had 2 strings of the same color and I tried to trace one with the small nib on the red marker. It's not perfect, but I doubt a 3 yr. old will notice. The middle balloon is cut out and popped up. I know, I can't believe I actually cut out that ribbon but it gave the look I wanted.
Just a simple layout to bring out the balloon colors.
It just so happens that the Free 4 All #52 challenge at SCS last Friday was to do a child's birthday card. Isn't that perfect timing?
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Teeny, Tiny Wishes
Ink: SU Markers (Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue, Real Red)

And guess what? We get to escort Luke to the Birthday Party at the Fun House! Pop and I may be babbling when we get home!
