This card is just for the fun of it.  Inspiration is from PTI's Melissa Bickford's card and her stamp design.
I thought it was perfect for a young man's upcoming birthday without being too frilly or girly,  although I had to add the adorable bow and the green card base is for his last name "O'Brien", had to be green, right?

After die cutting all of the balloons I stamped a variety of colors, drew some "strings" from the balloons and adhered all of the balloons.  Of course I fussied around with placement and finally decided on this arrangement.  I guess it's kinda like arranging flowers in a vase, never quite right.

I'd love to hear your comments on my card, so please leave a word or two.
Many thanks,
