In honor of Paper Crafts' World Card Making Day today, there are sales, contests, celebrations all over the Internet. Today is a major holiday in the lives of millions of card makers all over the world! The first thing I did to celebrate---was to sleep in until 9 a.m. This day already rocks :)
I have a few cards to share and a few specials to mention--because no holiday is complete without the awesome sales :)
My first card features stickers from SRM stickers. I used We've Got Your Border-Birthday to create the balloon designs and then punched out the circles. I also used more borders and border remnants to frame the image. Finally, I added the sentiment sticker along the bottom.
I used some Lemondrop baker's twine from The Twinery to make the fun balloon strings:
Head on over to the SRM Stickers blog. You can choose any one of the cards on the post today (including my card above) as inspiration to create a *new* card using SRM Stickers.

***Next, I have a Halloween card using a new set from Gina K Designs called Wicked!. I love the fun silhouette images in this set. I stamped the background with stars and then stamped a label design underneath the die cut label. That label stamp is from Seasonal Labels:
