Turtle Balloon Delivery Birthday Card

Hello and happy Thursday! School has started for middle and high schools this week and we are still adjusting to the new schedules.  Next week elementary school starts, so we will be back in our routine all around.

I don't mind the hustle and bustle, especially when I look out and I can just feel fall is on its way.  I LOVE fall holidays best, and there are always so many activities and crafts to do.

But for today, I'm here with a birthday card.  Not long ago, I decided to make a purchase from Paper Wishes.  It's sort of like a card kit, called Summertime Gumdrops, with papers, die cuts, and something called Dazzles.

I watched several videos on how to the use the Dazzles and finally put something together.  Everything is from the kit.  There are so many options, and I admit I was a bit overwhelmed, but I figured, it's just paper so use it up!

The black portion is the Dazzle that I put on white cardstock, colored with Copics, and fussy cut.  The Dazzles are shiny and I admit, I'm hooked already.  So many came with the kit, so I'll be using more of them for sure.  I didn't bother to add a sentiment since you can pretty much tell it's a birthday card.

So that's it for me.  Just sharing a new kit.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

This meets the following challenges: Crafty Sentiments: Animals, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, 2 Crafty Critters: Anything with a Critter, and Love to Craft: Anything Goes.
