Colourful balloon birthday card..

Hey everybody,
I played along Jackie’s new challenge search for Guest Designer at The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog.
I am inspired by the balloon card. Love the colourful balloons on the second middle card. So here is my card inspired by the balloon card.
Happy Birthday to you card

I sponged a white cardstock with various colour distress inks. I used the smallest balloon die from the Balloon die set by Simon Says Stamps to die cut the balloons. I then sponged a bit more colours to add shading to the balloons. For the background I used Linen background stamp by MFT and Gray Flannel Memento Luxe Ink. I then added the black twine to the balloons and assembled them as a bunch using foam adhesives. I tied twine and glued it to the card panel. I stamped the birthday sentiment on to the banner and adhered. Finally accented with the gorgeous and beautiful sparkly clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I am looking forward to tomorrow. I am meeting a online craft friend from New Zealand. Excited. Cannot wait to see her. 
Thanks for stopping by!
