Birthday Balloons… using up some kits!

Hi!
Today I have a really glitzy card to share with you. It features bits and pieces from the last few Simon Says Stamp card kits. It's fun to try and use all the different elements up, and here I have combined bits and pieces from three different kits. :)
The stripy gold and peach papers are from the gorgeous May kit - I added some embossed dots to the top of the peach paper using a stamp from the May kit stamp set - Congratulations. The sentiment is from the fun June kit's stamp set - Happy and Smile. Finally, the cute star brad is from the April kit. The extras are the fab Balloon Die set, and some gold glitter tape.

Loving all the sparkle on this card… but can you see my mistake? I burned my embossing powder… whoops! I decided to share the card anyway. We all make mistakes, right?

OK - that's all for today.
I'll see you again soon.
Bye for now.

I love your card using up bits and bobs of the card kits. It's so pretty. I didn't even notice the scorched embossing, until you told us. Add a white gel pen to it..just might work. I'm gonna copy this card...ok ok! I just love it.

You don't even see the scorching in the photos. I think it's fabulous.
