Chalkboard Birthday Card with Balloon Bash Stamps and Birthday Bash Paper

 

Last week I was in Hawaii for the Stampin' Up! 2015 Grand Vacation incentive trip!  I was lucky enough to be asked to be a presenter during our demonstrator Share Fair!  Approx. one month before the trip I received a box of goodies from the new catalog and below you'll see my creation . . . a pop-up platform card.  I promised instructions along with dimensions to those that stopped by and that will be coming . . . on May 27th . . . so please stop back next week!  In the meantime, scroll down to enjoy another fun idea!

I have loved using the Chalkboard Paper with the Chalk Inks!  The stamps in the Balloon Bash stamp set are perfect for the chalkboard look!
