Birthday Card ~ A Balloon Assortment {1st Post}

I can always use birthday cards and most of my cards need to be 
postal ready so I tend to keep my layers and embellishments limited.
To do that with this card I used an assortment of design paper 
and embossed card stock for my balloon die cuts.
The balloons are anchored using my handwritten sentiment.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Balloons cut using the Balloons Dies from Paper Smooches.
*Hand written sentiment from me. lol.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Polka dots folder from Provo Craft.
*Embossed using the Swirl Background folder from Darice.
*Design paper from the Happy Day 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye.
*Twine from my stash.

May your day always be filled with love.
