a Birthday Wish card with My Mind's Eye
I ((heart)) the new releases by My Mind's Eye...so very very beautiful. I just love looking at the papers fanned across my table..weird yes but I know you all understand ;)
For this birthday card I used one of the wood plank pattern papers from Miss Caroline collection and punched a scalloped border to mimic the top of a wood fence. I made and strung the banner across the fence and diecut some balloons and tied them to the fence with some twine.
My inspiration comes from something that I thought would be cool to do on my Birthday- to hold a bunch of balloons in one hand, make a wish and let it go. Have never done that and likely never will simply because there are many more important things to do on a Christmas Eve (lol) plus I wouldn't want the balloons to get in the way of the reindeer's important job!
The grid background is a stamp by Hero Arts and the Distress Ink colour is evergreen bough.
