Bold and Bright for STB!

Happy Thursday everyone! It’s time for a new challenge, at Seize the Birthday and our “Toppings” option this time, is “Bold and Bright”!

My card:

This time my card is all about paper and not a lot of stamping. I wanted to create some sort of rainbow as my “bold” element and did so with various strips of card stock. 

The “bright” element is all those fun, glittery stars.

I don’t seem to have a lot of things that fly, in my stamp collection, so I went with one of my favourite die cuts, a butterfly.

It’s my niece’s 6th birthday this weekend, so I thought something fun and festive was in order.  I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to ink up the Balloon Celebration stamp set – so many more possibilities with this one!
