A quick visit today. Todays card is similar to an offering from the other day, same design but different image and paper. They are of course from the same stamp set, Party this way, and the same Celebrate designer papers. The balloons create a different look from the candles but the design still works well.

An offering from the 2010-11 in-colours today. You gotta love concord crush and it goes so well with pear pizazz. The in-colour designer paper pattern stack was one of the hostess gifts last year and I used it here to make the balloons. I used a technique called paper piecing; I stamped the image on the card and then again on the designer paper. I cut the image out from the paper and "pieced" it onto the card. The sentiment is from sincere salutations and punched using the decorative label punch. I daubed around the edge in concord ink to soften the edges
