ShowCASe Your Style Challenge #9

Hello!  Welcome to ShowCASe Your Style Challenge #9!  Today we have a fun theme that I hope many of you will play along with: Birthday!

Jen Carter Whimsy Birthday Balloon Up Up Away

I have been so inspired by a lot of rainbow cards I've seen recently!  I LOVE color and so for this card I wanted to create a rainbow myself!  I thought that the rainbow coming out of the sentiment looked kind of like a spotlight announcing a big event.  I started by stamping the sweet sentiment from the Birthday Balloon stamp set.  I colored the "awesome" in with gel pens.

I did do a little stamp surgery to put this card together.  I took the rays from the Up, Up & Away stamp set and trimmed one of them carefully away from the other two.  I still have 2 rays that I can stamp together and 1 ray that I can stamp separately!  I love lots of options!  I stamped each ray in a different color and then added coordinating sequins to really brighten things up & make it festive!


I hope you'll play along with us!  We would love to see your creations using stamps from the Clearly Whimsy line, but all products are welcome to be used and no one is disqualified from winning!  The challenge is open for 2 weeks.  You can link up your cards and see the other Design Team samples by clicking here.  There are prizes up for grabs too, so be sure to check that out as well!



Thanks for coming by!  Have a great day!
