Birthday Card ~ For You {Post #3}

I had the hardest time working with this color combo
until I found this design paper.
Originally I was working with solids and had planned on embossing that area.
I arranged and rearranged the colors eventually cutting all of the pieces in each color but nothing fit until this design paper saved my card design.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Fox from the Critters In the Forest stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Sentiment and present from the Year Two stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Circles from the Standard Circles Large and the Standard Circles Small die sets.
*Balloons cut using the Classic Ovals Large die set.
*Design paper from the DCWV Girl Frille paper pad.
*Copic marker BV23
*Twine from my stash.
*CTMH Sunflower and Heavenly blue stamp pad
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
May your day always be filled with love.
