Wild West Balloons

It's been a while since I've had time to blog.  We're well into the preparations for our Holiday Club starting in 9 days time and  I've also been busy making a scrapbook for our youngest daughter's 40th birthday.  The theme for the birthday was The Wild West.  I'd like to thank Janet Pring for the inspiration for this card.  We made a very similar one at Clarity Stampers East but the colours I chose looked a bit too masculine.  For this version I stamped the forest ridge twice and lone ranger, both from Clarity Stamps.  I then masked off the top and bottom of the card, added a moon and path and then sponged the sky and ground using a Hydranger Big and Juicy ink pad.  I had some pink and blue striped paper which went well with the ink colours and I used this to decoupage the balloons.  I added the Clarity sentiment 'May all your dreams come true' and some gems to finish it off.  Inside the card I used the Clarity letter box kit to spell out 'Happy 40th Birthday.  It was lovely to be able to give her a card which linked with the theme of her party.

    1. Thanks Stephanie. I also love the colours in the hydranger pad and they make a very feminine card. She loved the card and we had a great birthday party.
