Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop: High Gloss

**This is my second post for today.  If you are here for my Lil' Inker Designs Release Post, please scroll down!  Thanks!**

Hey everyone!  I wanted to play along with the March PTI Blog Hop.  The theme for this month was high gloss.  I didn't have much time to pull together a card, so I kept it really, really simple!

Happy bday gloss 1.2

I needed a birthday card for a man, so I picked colors that would work well with a masculine theme without going the earthy direction.

It's SO hard to capture in the photo, but the "happy" is embossed in clear embossing powder to give it shine and the "birthday" is embossed with yellow.  The balloon has glossy accents added to the top of it to give it a lot of pop and shine.

If you'd like to join in on the fun, you have a chance to play along all day!

Thanks for stopping by today!
