Birthday Fun

Time of another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this week and our them is Birthday Fun. 

I used the Cat Crazy Stamps from Tim Holtz for this birthday card for one of my younger family members. The circle stamp in the background is a older Stampin Up stamp from my collection of rubber stamps. The background inks are Tim Holtz's Distress Oxides and the balloons are coloured with Copics.  

This was a fun card to make and I hope he will enjoy it. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to few the inspiring cards of the rest of our design team.
