Simple birthday card...

I always like to have a few birthday cards ready to go, and here's one that I made not long ago...

My medium blue sky was debossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. Then I added some clouds cut with my Impression Obsession cloud dies (a set of three sizes).

The balloons were cut with an old Cuttlebug 3" X 3" die. I simply added some strings and the "shine" spot on each balloon with my white gel pen.

Did you see that all three strings are held in place on the sentiment label with a red enamel dot? I did add a little glue, too, to keep them there!

The scalloped label was cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die, and the "Happy Birthday" was heat embossed.

The inside of this card is super simple, as you can see.

Today was a glorious day here in central Minnesota. It was over 70 degrees, and they're promising more of the same tomorrow. How is a girl supposed to get cards made when it's so nice outside??

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are, too. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Very nice, Cheryl, that color blue is so pretty. Balloons look great against it. Hope all is well with you.
