Celebrate you

Hi Stampers
I've been gone for a while. Been dealing with Vertigo. Not fun, let me tell you. But I did manage to get a card made for the Friday Mashup. It's a big deal this time. They are celebrating 200 challenges and are offering lots of prizes. Be sure to check them out.

The challenge is to mash together two of their challenges. Wow it was hard to pick. I love pretty much all of the challenges. So what I did was make a card and then pick two of the challenges that best fit the card.
Here is the card I make

I also did the inside and an envelope to match

So I would say challenges # 71
Black and white mashed up with Bling
and # 142
Twine mashed up with birthday
But there is also dry embossing, heat embossing, and partial die cutting.

The supplies I used to make my card are
From Stampin' Up
Basic Black and Verse Mark
Embossing powders
White and Black
Card Stocks
Basic black and Whisper White
Stamp sets with matching dies
Celebrate Today , Crazy about you, and Making Spirits Bright
Embossing folders
Lucky Stars and Perfect Dots
Confetti Stars Border ( that's where I got the little stars on the inside of my card
I also used black and white sequins and a black and white twine.
I hope you like my card. It was so much fun using so many of my favorite things.
Thanks for stopping by and

Oh Karen, I feel your pain! I deal with vertigo also and just dealt with an episode, it sucks! I'm glad to see you're stamping and feeling better.

This card is so elegant, I love the black and white and all the little details are fantastic!

So glad you joined us for The Friday Mashup 200th celebration!

I love your card, I thought it was the Circle flip card at first, but a really genius take with those balloons. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup!
