Birthday Card ~ Black and Blue {1st Post}

I had a little fun inking up one of my stencils today.
I used to work with stencils years ago but haven't used one in years.
I sponged up my background and die cut balloons.
I stamped the center sentiment balloon to add a little pop of color.

*Balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set from My Favorite Things.
*Balloons cut using the Party Balloons die set from My Favorite Things.
*Puntos/Points stencil from Latina Crafter.
*Memento Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue stamp pads from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
