Happy Birthday 2U

I loved making this card.  I was given a nice bag of supplies from a friend at work who had bought a bunch of stuff, but never used it.  We are actually doing some trade for it, I am making her some cards and journals to use as gifts in exchange for the bag of goodies...  Little did she tell me before hand that the entire bag was Stampin' Up products!  I can't even begin to tell you how much stuff was in there.... everything from Stamps and ink pads to paper, stickers, brads, scissors, corner rounders, and OMGoodness - so much more!  So this is the first card I made using those products.  All made out of scrap paper though...  The stamped sentiment are all stampin up stamps combined from I believe two different collections.  The balloons...  oh the balloons...  I had to try something... the bag of goodies contained a blender pen, which I just couldn't handle...  I had to use it, I had always wanted one and thought they would be so much fun to use!  So I stamped the balloon and used the Stampin' Up ink pads to color them in on white cardstock.  Then stamped the balloon strings on the card and pop-dotted the cut out balloons to add some dimension.  The scallop is cut from Plantin Schoolbook, and I added some doodling... 

Thank you for looking!
Have a great Day!
