Birthday Sundaes Challenge #26

The current challenge over at Birthday Sundaes is to make a criss cross birthday card. Now if you've never made one of these before, you can go here for a great tutorial on how to make one. It's been a good while since I've put one of these together. I didn't even use my Cricut for this card! Gasp!!!!! :) The bg designer paper I used is from K and Company-Confetti Paper Pad. It is full of great papers you can use for birthday and party cards. I so love the balloon paper and the stripes and circles is on the back of it as these are double sided papers!!  I remembered seeing these bling balloons at Hobby Lobby last week, but of course I didn't buy any so I went by after work today and picked these up 'cus I thought they would be perfect embellishment for my card. The band I stamped across the top with my sentiment, trimmed it down and then used a EK Success punch on it. I think it is called bubbles but don't quote me that! I also stamped the front of the card itself. This challenge just started this past Sunday so you have plenty of time to create and enter. Don't forget to put birthday wording somewhere on the card front. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
