Second month guest designing for i {heart} papers

Hey everybody,

This is the second month I am guest designing for i {heart} papers

Today I have a birthday card for you.

Happy Birthday card 2

I have trimmed the golden striped pattern paper from My Mind's Eye Charmed collection 6 x 6 pattern paper pad to the size of the card front and adhered on to the card front. I then die cut the large Polaroid frame from the Polaroid dies from My Favorite Things using black card stock. For the background, I simply painted some Evergreen Bough distress ink on some scrap cardstock and when dry adhered it to the back of the polaroid frame. I then die cut the large oval balloon from the Party Balloon Die also from My Favorite Things. I heat embossed some gold Zing embossing powder on the balloon randomly, tied the black and white baker's twine to it and adhered using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from Celebrate Big stamp set also from My Favorite Things. I have mounted this using foam adhesive as well. I finally embellished with sequins from Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine mix.
It is a simple card but the gold, black and mint colour combination creates a big impact. You can find all the products I have used on my project from i {heart} papers shop.
