SU One in a Million with a Sketched Birthday Balloon

Oh, golly… I am going to call this entry into The Friday MashUp # 119 the Wednesday MessUp since I managed to take an entirely clean work surface and turn it into this for just one card:


But in the end…I Mashed it up with the sketch and a lot of NEW catalog items- the Birthday Basics DSP, the Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Stretch Ribbon, and the new paper colors like Smoky Slate, Crisp Cantaloupe and Bermuda Bay (a return to the line-up). I love how stamp sets become fresh and new to me when I use new colors, papers, and accessories!

I masked out the ONE on my stamp image by placing a small piece of post-it note over it before I inked it so I could use the number 1 instead of the word one. Oh, and don’t forget to remove the post-it before you stamp!
