Celebrate!

Happy Friday everyone! I am finally starting to feel better thank goodness. It is wonderful to be able to breath through my nose again! I sure hope we are all done with being sick now. I hope that none of you end up getting this bug too because it sure was a nasty one.
Today I am sharing a card I have been wanting to make for awhile. A few months ago I saw this post on Holly Young's blog for how to make a flinging confetti card and have wanted to make one every since. The outside was inspired by a card I saw like it by Julie Warner. It also turns out this card is perfect to help virtually celebrate my fellow Papertrey Peep Carol's birthday which is today too. Happy Birthday Carol! I hope it is a great one! This card would be a great way to help celebrate Purim and Mardi Gras as well.

I started by brayering on the rainbow of color using the Calypso Kaleidacolor pad, Then I stamped the images from the PTI It's a Celebration Set with black Versafine. ink. When I was done with that I cut the piece into 1" strips then attached them to a piece of black cardstock. The dancing women images from Lasting Impressions With Panache were colored with SU markers then cut out and attached. The sentiment is from LIWP as well. A piece of multi colored yarn was added to the ladies hands at the top to finish it off.
This is what the inside looks like after the confetti has been ejected.

Here is a little video showing how the card really works too.

That's all for now. It is suppose to be a cold and snowy weekend here so I hope to get some stamping time in. I will be back soon with more things to share. Until then I hope it is warmer where you are and you have a great weekend! As always thanks stopping by.
