Birthday Balloons

Hi everyone....boy did this week go by fast...here it is Friday again!! Since I worked two days this week, I am really behind in my stamping therapy!! I will fix that today...LOL...no laundry, no cooking, no cleaning...just stamping!!!

This is the card that I made for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast Wednesday. The balloons from There She Goes Aim for the Clouds set were paper pieced with Echo Park dp and the sentiment is from the same set. The clouds were made with MFT's Die-namics dies and Candy Dots finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: There She Goes Aim for the Clouds
Paper: White, Vanilla, Brown, Echo Park A Walk in the Park
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Candy Dots, EK Success Scalloped Border Punch, Cloud Die-namics, SU Punch


Thanks for stopping by...hope you get to do a little stamping today, too!!!
