Balloon Wishes

Double D Challenges

Double D Challenges is celebrating their 6th birthday with a challenge to include party balloons.

My card is for my son in law and his 50th birthday the end of this month!!! WOW!!! Someone is getting old!! Perfect for the party balloon challenge at Double D Challenges. Their mood boards are always fun and filled with inspiration. My background is a free clip art background that I found online. I love those rainbow colors and design. The background was printed on glossy photo paper and trimmed down to fit my slimline card. I decided on the SSS Chunky Happy dies for my outside sentiment as well as a bunch of balloons from a Mama Elephant stamp and dies set. I do believe I may need to add a few more bunches of balloons inside the card to total that BIG 5 0 number for Chuck.

We had our first snow of the winter overnight. Three and a half inches is manageable and clearning went quickly so our reward was breakfast out today. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Take care and be safe.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, I loved the background and I thought printing it on glossy photo paper really made it stand out.

  3. So festive and bright, love the bright rainbow background. Maybe two balloons inside, one with the number 5 and the other number 0??? You’re nicer than I am, for my s-i-l’s 50 I made sure the number were very visible. lol

  4. Fabulous creation Gayle. Bright and cheerful and perfect for the challenge as well as a birthday card. Too many candles for a cake at age 50.

    1. LOL….I don’t even want to think of the size need for my cake to be able to hold all of the candles needed this year.

    1. I really liked the free image I found and since it was already in color thought it just need glossy photo paper. It’s not cheating to use a background like that is it? I will be adding more balloons for my son in law.

  5. Oh my goodness, fabulous design here. I love all the bright colors. Wonderful work here, and great take on the Mood Board. Thanks so much for playing along with us over at Double D. Hope see you back again soon.
