Happy Birthday Balloons with a Sketch

Hi, Friends.......

Get your shades're going to need them!  I am here with a card using the current MFT Sketch Challenge #576.  I thought of balloons and birthdays when I saw it.


I flipped the sketch and turned it into this happy card using some super bright fuchsia and turquoise favorite colors!!  The balloons have tiny rainbow polka-dots that are just adorable. 

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Big Balloon Cutaways die set - retired
Winnie & Walter - Essentials:  Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops) - retired
Inspired by Stamping - Graceful Hydrangea stamp set (retired)

Hope you enjoyed my card.  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Hope your New Year is going well.
