Happy Birthday Balloons

Oh my this is a second post from me today!  Scroll down to see my first one.  

This card was inspired by the sketch at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog.  This week they have given us a sketch to follow and for some reason when I saw it I thought of balloons.  Rather a lot of balloons!  Must be a big party or celebration Lol!  Here's the sketch - 

I just had to decorate the inside with some more balloons floating away.

Before I tell you all the details of the card, the colours were chosen from  another challenge blog - The Friday Mashup.  I know two challenges with one card, so unusual for me! So here's the rules for this challenge

Make a card using the above colours, make a card for Kids or mash it up and make a card using the colours and for kids.  Fun huh! 

So here's the details of my card.  I've used a Tempting Turquoise base.  I then stamped the balloon from the Party This Way stamp set in Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point.  Following roughly the curve in the sketch.  I then popped one balloon onto dimensionals.  I made a scalloped border in Daffodil Delight using the Scallop Edge Border punch and attached this to the top.  I added some Daffodil Delight ribbon (this is the ribbon I currently have on as a ribbon share, have a look at the post below) along the border then attached the panel to the card base.

This was such a fun card to make, check out the other entries in the challenges.  There's loads of inspiration.  x
