"Birthday" Challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters

It's that time again, a new challenge at
This time around our hostess  is one of our very newest
Design Team members, Glenda.
We are VERY happy to have her creativeness with us!

She has chosen the theme "Birthday"...
easy peasy, right, so lets see those birthday cards/projects!

I have had this card in mind as soon as my little gift box die arrived.
I had the idea to put balloons rising out of the box....
good idea, right?
But, to my surprise when I went to grab the dies,
I didn't have them, I had kites

Luckily for me, I had won a set of dies/stamps from Marianne dies
and it just so happened they were balloons....
saved by the bell, as they say!

I used a much neglected and older Cuttlebug EB folder
for my background....
might even be the first time I have used it!

If interested that little box die is from Neat and Tangled.
I had seen it used on someone else's blog, tracked it down
and it soon became mine. 
Just think of all the fun I can have with that,
and it will hold a gift card, too.

I decided to go with bright and happy colors with my card today,
I had a rescue kitten pass away in the night and I needed to see
cheerful colors sad and heartbreaking.
Anywho, I encourage you to head on over to 
The Sisterhood and see what my "sistah's have to inspire you.
That's one thing I love about DT's and challenges 
is everyone's different take on the themes,
makes is so much fun!

Entering the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon .... Birthday
Word Art Wednesday .... ATG/Family Friendly
Creative Card Crew .... Die Cuts

What a fun birthday card! Love that little gift box (guess I'm going to have to track it down too as it needs a home here too). Love the tissue paper coming out of the box too.
