So if you haven't heard, it's the 2011 'Gallery Idol' contest! This is my first time entering in the contest. I only entered in two cards as of now, due to my crazy schedule...After all, it only takes one card to win!
I wanted to keep my cards fairly simple, yet have a little 'pop' to them. The 'hot air balloon' card, I added some pop by using floss for the clouds. The outcome is great to me but did require some steady work. For my 'green & blue' card, I added my pop just by using a few simple rinestones. Very easy to do and quick.

This is just a little card I made up, I went for some fancy on this. Using papers that looked more elegant to me. I didn't want to make it over the top fancy, so I softened it up some by adding a little "puffed heart sticker" to the pocket and adding a light blue sheer ribbon, as well as inking a soft brown color around the tag.

All the supplies I used except for the paper and cardstock were from my "2011 Stamping Royalty" prize package.
A little bit of white cardstock, some precious metals silver paper, some textured blue paper, birthday stamps, colored pencils, jewel stickers, and a ink pad you can do it too! I kept in mind that I didn't want this card to be a time sucker for me. All I did was stamp my rocket on a piece of white cardstock, I stamped it at a angle as if it were blasting off into the sky. I then added a few stars around it and stamped my greeting at the bottom. While that was drying, I then cut my papers to the size needed for my card. After drying I colored in my stamps, using colors of my choice and then added my jewel stickers. I then layered all the papers and attached them to my card (you can choose the adhesive you prefer). I did also stamp the inside of the card with 'happy birthday' but your welcome to leave it blank.
