Birthday Card ~ Happy {3rd Post}

I started by water coloring my background.
Next I used the balloon die to cut my shaker window.
Then I decorated the balloon with heart stamps.
I used an insect trail for the balloon string.
Part of my sentiment is a die cut and the other is stamped.
I finished up my card with some shiny sequins.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Balloon cut using the Balloons dies from Avery Elle.
*Happy cut using the Simply Said Happy Die from Avery Elle.
*String and hearts from the Sending You stamp set from Avery Elle.
*Avery Elle also available at Loves Rubber Stamps & Simon Says Stamps.
*Birthday from the Year Two stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Memento Tuxedo Back and Bahama Blue stamp pads from Tsukineko.
*Sequins from my stash.

May your day always be filled with love.
