For me a birthday party should definitely have balloons :) So here's my birthday card...

To make this card, I used a die cut tag and inked it with distress ink, I also did some tone on tone stamping with dots of various sizes.  I also took some balloons and inked them. Next I adhered the balloons, hand drew the strings and added the sentiment banner. Also tied a ribbon to the tag. On the card base, I stamped the stripes of varying thickness. To finish the card, I added some tiny die cut butterflies and popped the tag with some foam dots.
I am sharing this card at Color Me #33 and Freshly Made Sketches #149 as inspired by the colors and sketch respectively :) Also, sharing this at Seize the birthday - Anything Goes!

  33. Deepti, I should stop being surprised at what you come up with, but you always manage to make my jaw drop (it does start to hurt after a while, you know). Your distress ink technique is flawless. Hats off to you (if I had a hat)! :)
