Up, Up and Away . . . Birthday

Hi Everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It was a busy one here, with lots of activities for the boys.  We divided our time yesterday between a San Francisco Giants game and the boys' piano recital -- both great events, I'm glad I had the privilege of attending!  The weather here yesterday and even today was surprisingly cool and windy, so decided to pick this card to share with you:

I used the Celebrate Today stamp set and Balloon Framelits dies to create this card.  The background paper is from the Best Year Ever Pack (from Sale-a-Bration), though it could be fun to use the bokeh technique to create a similar look!  The balloon is Crisp Cantaloupe card stock, stamped with Calypso Coral, and with a Crisp Cantaloupe bow and Hello Honey banners.  The same colors were using in the greeting banner.  The balloon's basket and strings are stamped in Basic Gray.  Card base is Coastal Cabana, and there's also a layer of Whisper White peeking out between the designer paper layer and card base.

Hope this cheerful card brightens your day!  Thanks for stopping by!

- Michelle
