With the release of the BRAND NEW 2016-2017 Annual Inspirations this past week, there are LOADS of new goodies for you to see!!

Here is the card I created for today…
2016 Whimsy Fundamentals - bday balloon card DSC_2472
There are so many FUN, new products used on this card!!

I used 3 stamp sets on this card – Birthday Sparkle, Happy for You & Way to Go. You can check out the images of these stamps at the bottom of this post.

Let’s take a closer look…

I also used TWO of our new 5x7 embossing folders!! 

The sweet Leaf green cardstock was embossed with the Word Search folder, while the sorbet cardstock I used the Chevron.

I was DELIGHTED to learn that with a smaller strip of paper – the chevron can also be turned into just “plain” diagonal lines!!  Yay!!!

The only stamp that is used from the “Way To Go” stamp set, is that ADORABLE heart banner on the left hand side of the card. 

Here is a list of the NEW PRODUCTS that I used on this card.
