Hi Everyone
I am so glad you've stopped in today. I have a fun card to share with you. Today's theme over at the Art Impressions weekly challenge is a Circle Card. And on top of that, the postman delivered me some new Art Impressions stamps today, perfect timing!!! I knew what kind of a card I wanted to do and when I looked at the new stamps, I envisioned which stamps I thought would be perfect for that round card. I selected the Party Girls because of the balloons, it just fit with the round card theme.

Here is the card opened

The girlfriends are having a blast and I just added some more balloons to add to the party look. I added bakers twine to the balloon bottoms so they could hold on to the balloons. LOL.  The sentiment is sitting on a tag cut from the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Die. I actually extended the die to allow the sentiment to fit. Also, since there is a large area of white space, I added my squiggles to that white background using a glue pen and covered that with Sparkling Snow Glitter. That just adds to the party atmosphere. LOL
