Happy Birthday - YCU Challenge #11 {Layers}

Hi there! I know I’ve been M.I.A from blogging lately. I’ve just been focusing on living life. Things have been busier than ever it seems, and I’ve just been trying to keep up with it all. Plus, right now we have my sister-in-law and niece visiting from NYC - which is keeping us busier than usual ;). I have been creating: cards, and some lovely felt creations too, but I just haven’t been taking the time to share/post them :(.

Today I did wanted to share a card I made for the Young Crafters Unite “Layers” Challenge that’s going on right now :). {In case you can’t tell from the picture, I popped the hot air ballon up using foamies for added dimension} I made this card for one of the teachers at my daughter’s preschool. Her birthday is on Monday :).

Everything on the card - except the cutsie doily (which is from Michaels) came in the Simon Says Stamp June Card kit! I really like their card kits. I don’t usually like buying kits, but this one appealed to me - the Basic Grey patterned papers are so lovely! And the elements are too. I’m loving the colors on this card!

Thanks for peeking in on me :). Hopefully I’ll be back to posting more often soon!
