Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!! It’s all about birthdays this year. Everyone has them, you do, I do, everyone! Here’s a quick card I made using the new Party Animal Design Series Paper. It is the perfect birthday paper with all the fun, bold colors. I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set for the balloons and the sentiment and had I been thinking, I would have used the coordinating dies for the balloons and string, but the Balloon Bouquet punch worked perfectly. I drew the balloon strings by hand with a Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped the bow in Pacific Point ink. I actually had a little bit of the retired Pacific Point stitched ribbon so I used it here. I love all of Stampin’ Up!’s ribbon and just couldn’t part with this after it retired. Time to stop hoarding!! lol

I hope you like the card. It really was another quick and easy card to create.
