I made this card for a friend who was turning 50 this year. (Oh what I'd give to be 50 again!) I used the Atlantic Hearts Sketch # 177 as my guide and three new Close to My Heart stamp sets. D1711 True Love stamp set was used for the child and the balloons, B1539 Pen Pal Alphabet was used to stamp the "50" inside the balloons and B1537 Birthday Sparkles was used for the sentiment.
I used my Shin Han Markers for coloring in the stamps and Lagoon Cardstock for the border.
Normally I have a hard time with "white space" on my cards, but I didn't mind this one so much. I actually like it.
