The Stamps of Life: "Punch Challenge"

I got to play with this month's challenge from "The Stamps of Life." This challenge is to use a punch on your project. I hardly ever have birthday cards in my card stash. I'm not sure why, since I usually need b-day cards. But I thought it would be fun to use some stamps from "The Stamps of Life" to create a birthday card.

Here is my card (and take on this month's challenge):



I used the HappyBday2You stamp set to create this card. One of the balloons is stamped on pattern paper. The other balloons are solid and stamped on white cardstock. I added pop dots to the back of each card to make them pop. I also stamped a little banner at the bottom. I folded in the edges to make this banner pop as well. I used a border punch for my scallops on the left and right side of the card.

If you decide to play along, you can load your images in "The Stamps of Life" gallery here.
