Birthday Card ~ Balloon Animal {1st Post}

When I first saw this CUTE balloon animal stamp
I knew I just had to have it.
It reminds me of carefree days of childhood.
I inked up my stamp and stamped this little guy three times
to get a gradual color change from dark to light.
I fussy cut and then added them with foam tape.
I used an edge punch to add the star border,
stamped the sentiment and added a few
negative cut stars from the border to finish it off.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Balloon and sentiment from the Party Animal stamp set from Avery Elle.
*Starry Night edge punch from EK Success.
*CTMH Tropical Blue stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
