DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #191-Stylized Birthday

Welcome back to another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week we have a sketch challenge. To say this was one of the MOST DIFFICULT sketches for me, is an understatement. I really struggled with this. I actually had to take a break and then go back to the drawing board so to speak. 

#191

 

I do like the final results. Sometimes I think I try "too hard" to get it just right and make things harder than they really are. Stylized Birthday wasn't on my wish list but my upline Dawn Olchefske made persuaded me to buy it by showing great samples made with it!!! It is a great single stamp and I love the font.

Perfect! I was trying to think of other shapes I could use, and a balloon never crossed my mind but it works so well here! Very clever! Thanks for sharing.
