Happy Birthday

I was checking out cards I saved from Pinterest today to get some mojo going.  I always love bright rainbow colors...they always make me happy!  So I came up with this card...a combo of two different card designs from Pinterest.  I cut all the balloons out using the 2nd smallest balloon from the MFT Dienamics Balloon Stax.  Then I embossed them all with a Darice dotted folder, and tied black embroidery floss around the bases. After I arranged them on a white card base I cut them out with a stitched rectangle die keeping the floss strings out of the way.  I then gathered all the strings together and glued them down under the Happy Birthday sentiment (from Tim Holtz) embossed with white powder on a black strip of paper. Then I glued the whole panel down on a black panel & glued it all onto a white card base.  I think it's both fun and colorful!!  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
