Happy Monday everyone!
Today is the start to the Your Next Stamp Design Team Showcase and we are featuring ideas in celebration to YNS' 7th birthday, related to Birthdays! Everyday this week there will be projects posted on the YNS blog to jump start your creative mojo. So, blow up those balloons and let's celebrate!

Let's talk about the elephant in the room... my handwriting! LOL! It is not the best, but realized that I did not have a "party planning" type stamp set. So I improvised and did the best I could with a marker. The topper was added with another balloon that is popped up and some twine. You could essentially make this any size you desire, but mine was kept close to an A2 size.
