Chronology 30th Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

Can't believe another week has gone by - been really busy this week so I'm glad it's the weekend! I'm now looking forward to enjoying the sun today.

Here is a card that I made for the 30th birthday of the guy who was best man at our wedding. Everything is from the DoCrafts Chronology range, which I love. The balloon and sentiment was from a decoupage pack, that I won in a competition in the Creativity Magazine.

I distressed the different layers of the balloon with dusty concord, faded jeans and walnut stain distress inks before layering them up using foam pads.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Crafting Cafe - One for the Boys

Thanks for stopping by!
