Birthday Bonanza

I'm really trying to stay on top of my birthday cards this year, my ultimate goal is to make tons of birthday cards to fill my birthday card box.  Sometimes though my mojo says nah lol!

Today, wasn't one of those days though!

This card gave me the fits!!!!  I kid you not it looks so easy but good grief did I have trouble with it!  That Happy Birthday is actually the same die cut out and layered multiple times.  The first attempt I didn't pre-color the paper and boy did that not work. Then after I got the first attempt with the balloons glued in place I realized I didn't have rhinestones or any embellishments in those colors.  I tried to use sickles and ended up smearing it so badly I had to start over.  I ended up coloring some clear rhinestones with my Copics.  All because I saw a card like this on Pinterest that I liked,

Another Pinterest inspired card.  They, however, had inks in gradients that worked really well.  I refuse to buy more inks (unless they are Oxides lol) so had to go with what I had.  I like it well enough.

I made more but I'll space the post out so as not to flood you with birthday cards!
