Colorful Happy Birthday

This card is for:
Meljen's Buttons & Bows challenge
CPS Sketch #227

Here's my card:
I wish I had bright blue ribbon!! Just a note on the lace:  This also belonged to my grandmother so it's practically vintage!

Here's CPS's sketch:


  1. This is really neat! I love how you've layered the red & blue mats!
    Thanks so much for playing along at Meljen's Designs this week!
    Hugs!! Dee Sprytebyrd's Sentiments

  2. This is totally cute! Love the balloon button element! Thanks for playing along with us this week!

  3. LOVE those button balloons! So cute!! I too like the stair step as you layered your matts. So glad you shared with us at MelJen's your 'Buttons and Bows' creation this week.

  4. Great idea to use buttons for your balloons. Love your wild designer paper. Thanks for sharing on the Meljen's Design Challenge.
