Birthday Card ~ Birthday Bunch {3rd Post}

For my third birthday balloon card I took a little creative licence 
with the sketch turning it sideways and 
using the three balloons to represent the triangles.
This was really a creative stretch for me since 
I usually try to follow sketches pretty closely.
I left off the accent strip because I wanted this one to be real CAS.
I was real happy the string bow stamped so well over the die cut balloons.
I think this one will be going to one of my brothers {I have 4}

*Balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set from My Favorite Things.
*Balloons cut using the Party Balloons die set from My Favorite Things.
*Puntos/Points stencil from Latina Crafter.
*Memento Tuxedo Black and Cottage Ivy stamp pads from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
