Well how exciting is this? AAA Cards is 1 year old! And just like all babies this first year has seen amazing growth and many milestones reached. So of course we're going to celebrate in style and share our success with all our friends and followers with loads of superb prizes and a spectacular blog hop.
The challenge this month is so simple - make us a birthday card to help us celebrate! Mega prizes for the winners!
The image I've used is from Digi Stamp Boutique, the balloon stamp from Uniko Studio and the die cut rectangle and sentiment from Lawn Fawn - three of our blog sponsors.
My card was definitely made with another first birthday in mind - my youngest grandson will be having his first at the end of the year. So I went with a mix of sugared almond colours, a fun image and a wobbly balloon.
The photo below shows the mechanism behind the balloon which not only makes the balloon pop up when removed from the envelope but also makes it wobble whenever the card is touched - such fun!! This was inspired by the wonderful Jennifer McGuire here.
And here's a teeny tiny video to show how it wobbles.
