Stampin' Up Birthday

Are you totally shocked with this card and all the white on my blog?!? I am!!! It is driving me nuts! I always love everyone's cards with all the white. I thought I would give it a go. Can't do it!! Oh, well we all have our breaking points and mine is blank space. You have no idea how hard is was not to stick some buttons there. =) I got some new Stampin' Up things in the mail the other day and thought I would play with it. The balloons and black part of the banner is from a set called Party This Way. I also used their pennant punch. Totally love that and will be using it more I'm sure.
These are the challenges I am submitting this card into:
iSpy Sketches - Sketch
Poodles Parlour - Birthday
Aud Sentiments - Birthday
Sarah Hurley - Birthday
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!

Sarah, awesome card with that wonderful white space! CAS are my favorite cards and so it's pretty easy for me. The kind you do are the hardest...but I have done some and were pleased with the results. You just have to do a few and you'll see how much you love them! {oh, and you can still put buttons on them, too...teehee!} Great job! ;D

Oh I love this, Sarah. I love the fresh white space in the background and your design is awesome.
But I understand what you mean... I can deal and like white space... what drives me crazy are no layers. While I absolutely adore one layer, CAS cards others make, min always look "flat" and unfinished to me. Maybe it's something in are creative genes, hehe!
