Happy Birthday

Hello!  My stash of birthday cards run low pretty quickly so I am loving my birthday word dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.  It also comes with a balloon die so you don't need much else!  Here I used some watercolor paper washed with a rainbow of colors so that I could die-cut my words out of it.  After embossing a panel with the new (to me) Life Crafts Dainty embossing folder, I die-cut a couple of balloons out of it.  The embossed panel was then raised on foam to the card base. I glued different colors of balloons back into the empty space (in-laid die-cutting) but I also popped the other three up on some foam tape.  I love the effect it made.  I used my white gel pen to add some shine to the balloons and silver twine to finish my card.  Hope you like it!
