Birthday Card ~ Banner Birthday {1st Post}

I've been having fun playing with this design paper and the bright colors.
First I cut my banner from this bright chevron paper.
 Next I cut along the bottom following the chevron lines.
Then I added the sentiment using the die cut design paper banner.
I backed the sentiment banner with a couple more die cuts.
To add a little decoration to the die cut the balloon I die cut the chevron dots.
To finish my card off I added the little twine balloon string.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Balloon cut using the Party Balloons die set from My Favorite Things.
*Small banners and balloon chevron design cut using the Blueprints 20
   die set from My Favorite Things.
*Design paper from the Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 pad from Doodlebug Designs.
*Twine from American Crafts.

May your day always be filled with love.
