More Balloon Birthdays

This weekend we have an extra day's holiday - for the Queen's birthday. And whilst there are aren't really any big birthday celebrations because of it, 700 Australians were recognised and honoured for what they do. One name I did know among the many was Dick Smith - and whilst he's a very successful businessman, he also has done a lot of work over the years helping and mentoring other Australian businesses so it was nice to see him being honoured for that.

And for me, the day was a relaxing one with some crafting time! The card I have to share with you today is one I made earlier in the week for a new friend in Western Australia and is an "opposite" - or reflection - of the card I made for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. You can see more info on that post here.
The last card was a masculine one and so I decided to make female version - still  Black and white with a pop or two of colour - I hope she likes it :-)

So I kept the layout the same and changed the background from black to white,  the yellow balloon to pink and changed the silver foil details to gold. Also the greeting is white embossed on black - which also was the reverse on the original card.

Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Designer Series Paper: Back to Black
Inks: Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay, Versamark
Stamps: Celebrate Today, Crazy About You
Accessories: Big Shot, Balloon Framelits, Itty Bitty Banner Framelits, Stripes EF, Hello You Thinlits, Gold EP

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are having a great weekend wherever you are and that you too might have a moment to be creative!

Happy stamping until next time,
