Birthday "Balloons"


This card was inspired by the stamp I used in this card, and a Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass design.

My daughter Kate told me that they don't really look like balloons. I told her that they are stylized balloons. What's stylized, she asked. Balloons like this, I said! lol!

The Stamps of Life Basics4ABC, various outline circles and a black Copic Multiliner and a ruler to make the strings.

cool! I think I'm going to case this idea. It's also very Venn Diagram-y.

What a great take on the Frank Lloyd Wright design! (There's another good book if you're still on the lookout - "Loving Frank").

I smile each time you write about your daughter's reactions to your cards...it has got to be a daughter thing! I adore this card. They do look like stained glass ballons. Love how you "tied them down" to the sentiment!

Soooooo original, AGAIN. Wish I could get a few of your brain cells cloned and put in a bottle you could send me.
Bravo!

I love how the strings worked out for almost every single letter! Great idea!
