A Blimp Birthday Card

Today I'm playing along with two of my favourite card challenges - Mojo Monday and Dynamic Duos.

The Mojo Monday sketch is a nice and simple one this week. I pulled out the Moving Forward stamp set since I haven't used it yet (love this set - so adorable and perfect for kids cards). The blimp is the central image of my card. I fussy-cut it and popped it up to give the card some dimension. The sentiment is also popped up.

One of my favourite parts of this card is the background. I embossed it with the Cloudy Day embossing folder -- it adds some nice texture and coordinates perfectly with the blimp. Striped Midnight Muse DSP covers the bottom half of the card front and Bashful Blue satin ribbon is wrapped around it.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for a new KCRR challenge!
