Birthday Card ~ Stars and Stripes {1st Post}

I have a couple more birthday cards to share.
For these cards I drew the black lines on my 
background and simply colored them in.
For my first card I stamped the sentiment on one of the 
balloons in my bunch then added star die cuts to the others.
To finish up I tied a knot in their twine strings.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Sentiment from the Happy stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
*Balloons cut using the Celebration Time die set from Simon Says Stamp.
*Stars cut using the Starry Die from Verve Stamps.
*Twine from my stash.
*YR07 and Y06 markers from Copic.
*Detail marker from Chameleon.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
