Birthday Balloons

Several ideas came to mind when I saw the sketch from Retro Sketches: flowers, hearts, stars, but I decided to go with balloons.  Color Throwdown had colors that I thought would create a pretty card.  I embossed the white background with birthday hats (I think yellow would have been a better choice).  I cut the balloons with the Cricut and also embossed two of the balloons for dimension. Cut a thin strip of blue and yellow paper for the curly ribbon.  And finally I glued them with thick glue dots at different levels.  Enjoy!
