Freshly Made Sketches.....Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

This week is a very special week over there, it is their 200th Sketch and they are Celebrating!!

They have a great sketch and tons of prizes up for grabs!!
So I had to play along!
I pulled out my Stampin Up set Celebrate
Today with it's matching framelits to make my card. This is a perfect set for a Celebration!

I stamped my Balloon with Watermelon Wonder ink and used Rose Red ink for the confetti inside the balloon.
I used the matching die to cut out the balloon. The banner and bow is cut out using some gold foil paper.

I stamped the tail directly onto my card using Watermelon Wonder ink. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday, Everyone stamp set with Black Memento ink across the bottom of my panel.
I then cut it apart and layered a piece of the In Colors Envelope Paper behind my main panel.

The base of the card is the Stampin Up Thick Whisper White card stock.
The balloon is on dimensionals. I added the gold bow and banner to the balloon with glue. I then pulled a few gold sequins off  the string it comes on in the Gold Trim  and that gave me the idea to use that string for the string on my Balloon.
I added a  gold few sequins to finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by today!
