Birthday Balloons

Good Wednesday Afternoon.  I hope every one is having a great hump day.

The next two months are big birthday months for me, so I need to make some cards.  I decided to use Lori Whitlock's new balloon card.  When I first cut them, I thought the balloons were huge, but I just love the card. 

I went outside my normal colors.  I really liked these colors together.  I textured the top balloon so that there was so solid colors sitting on top of each other.  Instead of cutting the little pieces around the balloons, I cut one big piece.  This made putting the card together super easy.  I will be using this again. 

The challenge over at As You Like It is favorite sentiment.   Like several of the design team, I don't have a favorite sentiment but I do love this small Happy Birthday.  I have used it several times and it is perfect for the front of the card.

I am going to use it for the following challenges:
   As You Like It - Favorite Sentiment & Why
   Milk Coffee Challenge - Birthday
   A Gem of a Challenge - Spots and Stripes
   Sweet Stamps - Take Flight
   Stampin Royals - Anything Goes
   Artistic Inspiration - Color Inspired
  Crafty Creations - Just For Fun

Have a great afternoon and I will be back later with something else.
