Colour Q Challenge & Seize the Birthday – Tall & Skinny – Post 1

I needed some Birthday cards today so I hustled into my office and following these 2 challenges I made 2 cards!!

One of them is featured here and the other one will be in Post 2 for today!!

The challenges that I am linking up to are:

Seize the Birthday Challenge – Tall & Skinny Birthday Topping



ColourQ  Challenge # 287



Just Add Ink# 259 Sequins

And This is the card I made for these challenges –


I used a new Penny Black set I ordered and the colors red, black, grey and white!! I watercolored the balloon and added a Wink of Stella to it also!! Doodlebug red sequins dressed this card up rather nicely!!

I am still working on catching up with my commenting – I will be by to visit you if I haven’t already!!

Please know that I think you are AMAZING and I appreciate you!!

Have a great day!!

    Another great one! Loving the sequins and how you’ve tilted the sentiment banner up, I think that adds a bit to the feeling of height.

    Your tall, slim card is ever so gorgeous! Love the happy balloon, so beautifully coloured, as the star of the stage! Such an eye-catching layout…simple, yet stunning! I’ve not created a tall card for ages…wait…I don’t think I ever have. Hmmm…with you as inspiration, I’ll be keeping my eye out for the next opportunity!
