I’m loving my latest Whipper Snapper stamps.  I only wish I could buy more in each order!

This little cutie is perfect for so many different cards – birthday, anniversary, just to say hi, get well, I think it’s very versatile.  Of course, birthday is probably the most obvious due to the balloon bouquet but I decided to use it for an anniversary card for its debut.

I used Ranger Glossy Accents on the balloons and the bear’s nose – it just gives the card that little extra touch.  My patterned paper is Basic Grey Olivia and I used the heart pattern to make this a little more anniversary like.  The balloons are not quite as matchy matchy as I’d like but that’s due to limitations of my Copic collection (I haven’t added to it in a while – maybe I need to get some new pinks and greens).

The sentiment is from PTI and I used an SU punch to shape it.  A few flat backed pearls give a little extra something to a very simple layout.

Now I just need to get a gift to put inside the card and shoot it off in the mail to my brother and his wife.
