Birthday Card ~ Happy On A String {1st Post}

I would like to thank the wonderful people at 
Simon Says Stamps for the stamps and dies I used on my cards today.
I was the lucky winner of one of their fun challenges.

First I stamped my balloon string using this cute sentiment border.
Next I stamped then die cut the fun chevron balloon.
To finish my card off I added a sprinkle of sequins.

*Balloon from the Celebrate stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
*Balloon cut using the Celebration Time die set from Simon Says Stamp.
*Sentiment from the Handwritten Borders stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
*Memento Teal Zeal stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
