This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to 'just add H'. This corresponded with an experimental period with my new set from the Holiday Catalogue, Sip, Sip Hooray. You can buy the stamp set alone or as a bundle with the matching dies. I love that one of the dies lets you cut out a bubble effect.
So I'm adding some HOORAYS! in this birthday card.
I wanted to create a sense of fun and celebration for this card so as well as having the glasses and 'hoorays' askew, I worked up a bright, bubbly background for them.
The background involved some sponging, some spritzing, some stamping, some die-cutting and some embossing and I like how it turned out: like a good dose of summery fun.
