Black & White Birthday Card

Here is a couple of matching cards I made this morning. They are for the Jitterbuggin' challenge, which was the sketch, to use black and white with one accent color, to use a punch and of course to use Cricut somewhere in it. I was struggling with a theme to use when I saw the Throwback Thursday Challenge at My Creative Time. It was to make a birthday card using Celebrations. I combined the two and came up with these great cards. I used George and Basic Shapes for the
circle and the squares. I used Celebrations for the balloons, cake and stand, and the word celebrate. I then used three scalloped circle punches for my accent.

  5. Love, Love, Love these! I love the blue with black and all the different textures in the balloons.

    I do the sketches digitally and often haven't ever made a "real" one when they are posted. So I was so thrilled to see this card in person....it turned out great!

    Thanks for Jitterbuggin'
