Ink #194 - R photo

It's been two weeks since I last published something. I've been sorting all my crafting stuff to prepare for storage units being installed and it's happening this weekend. I swap homes with my sister, she will do the work here and I will take care of her 3 kids at her house. But today we have a new challenge at Inkspirational and it's a photo.
Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.

I was inspired by the letter and used chipboard letters on my card. I also tried to replicate the colors and patterns by coloring the letters with Promarkers and using a black pen. Even the wooden background can be seen both in the photo and on my card. I had to give my card a birthday party feel so I stamped a border of balloons with a Lawn Fawn stamp and coordinated the colors with those of the letters. A few other stamps were used as well.

This card is also for:
Papercraft Challenges - #44 - Stripes
AAA Birthday - #4 FOR THE BOYS
Creative With Stamps Challenge - #41 Dad or Masculine
