Hey 'Fetti Fans!  Welcome to our monthly hop.  I just moved this week and my creative space is still a disaster (and that is putting it nicely!).  Kelly is here to start the blog hop.  Enjoy!

Hello and welcome to this month's Reverse Confetti Blog Hop! I'm sharing a bright "happy for you" card today that could work for just about any congratulatory event! I'm always needing cards like this, but really don't make them on a regular basis. I usually just end up by using a "hello" card or "thinking of you", so I'm excited to add this to the mix! Don't forget to hop along to all of the designers' blogs to see what they've come up with this month!

To begin this design, I die cut the On the Curve Cover Panel out of white cardstock and then did some ink blending using Distress Oxide inks; Festive Berries, Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves. Once it was blended, I spritzed it with water and Shimmer Spray and set it aside to dry.

While this design is very simple. I always like adding extra depth and dimension to my cards. I decided to die cut the amazing Stitched Rays Cover Panel out of white cardstock to layer behind the blended piece. It just gives some extra subtle detail that makes the "hooray" seem a little bit more exciting!

I heat embossed the "so very happy for you" sentiment in white onto a strip of black cardstock using the Word Up stamp set. The "hooray" is die cut 3 times out of white cardstock using the Hooray and Cheers Word Duos Confetti Cuts and glued together using liquid glue. I attached it to the card using liquid glue as well.

 Balloons are fitting for any type of celebration and this little monkey delivering them couldn't be any cuter! He is from the new Party Animals stamp set and I stamped and colored him using alcohol markers. I die cut it using the Party Animals Confetti Cuts and added some Crystal Glaze over the top of the balloons for some realistic looking shine.
I added some rainbow sparkle gems here and there for some added sparkle and detail.

Ok, now it's time to hop on over to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has to share with you today!
