Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for February!

Here is a little Birthday card that I created for a card swap.  I typically leave the inside blank for a card swap.  I used the our Artiste Cricut cartridge (page 70 - Accent 2) to cut the cloud out of the card base and then also slightly smaller out of White Daisy. I inked the edges of the white cloud with Crystal Blue ink.  I used our 3 dimensional tape on both the balloon and the cloud to make them pop.

Stamp Set - Give a Lift - D1581
Card Base - Crystal Blue - 1292
Scalloped Trim - Twilight - X5666  cut with our scallop border punch - Z1851
Accent B&T paper - Balloon Ride
Grey wool Baker's twine - Z1701
