May International Blog Highlights


Hi and welcome to my first time blogging with Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights.  I've followed Kylie's Highlights for a while now and ooh-ed and aah-ed my way through the gallery.  There are some amazing creations each month, don't you think?!

The theme for this month is Masculine.  

When I got my catalogue a few weeks ago and I saw that Lift Me Up had made it into the NEW CATALOGUE I was super excited, it's a very fun, gender neutral stamp set and honestly, who doesn't love a hot air balloon?  

I had to use it on my card right?  and here it is;

I knew that I wanted to create my own background for this card, and I've done that using Dapper Denim Cardstock and Ink, I've sponged the edges for a more grungy, manly look (which I think I nailed by the way lol)  Onto that I've simply used the large detailed Hot Air Balloon from the Up & Away Framelits, given it a swipe with Crumb Cake on a sponge, added a super simple banner and a couple of clouds for balance.  Because I'd only added two clouds my card looked a little unbalanced so rather than a large sentiment across the banner, I opted for a teeny banner with a simple "Happy Birthday" (from Sprinkles of Life). 

I am really happy with the card I've created, now I need someone to have a birthday so that I can give it to them...but do I want to part with it?

Before you go, I'd love it if you'd pop over to Kylie Bertucci's Blog and vote for my card.  The Top Ten earn a place in "Kylie's Top Ten International Blog Highlights" it would totally make my day to win a place!!!
