Birthday Card ~ Floral Balloon (post #1)

I fell in love with this paper so much when I got the 12x12 pad that I just had to go back and get the 6x6 pad so I could use the pretty prints with the smaller designs.
This little floral print is the perfect accent to this adorable Paper Nest Doll digital image.
One of the neat things about these images is they are available both in digital and in rubber stamps.
I used the left over scrap pieces to paper piece one of the balloons and to add a flower to the sentiment banner.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front 5.25 x 4 in. pattern paper from the Kathy Davis Happiness 6x6 pad.
*Sentiment stamped on a banner from the Verve Stamps Flag It Die Set .
*Sentiment stamp from the Small Phrases from Verve Stamps.
*Turning Three Paper Nest Doll image from The Paper Nest .
*Copic markers: E11, E15. E17, BV0 & B23

May your day always be filled with love.
