My finished card looks nothing like the idea I had when I started this card.  I actually started this last week and didn’t have time over the weekend to finish.  When I sat down today to finish it, I wasn’t really happy about my original idea.  So this card happened instead….

The card base is Smoky Slate and the DSP is from A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Pack.  The more cards I make using Smoky Slate, the more I like it’s softness and subtleness and this DSP pack has some wonderful patterns in that color.

The sentiment is from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set and is stamped in Calypso Coral.  I cut it out in Whisper White and Smoky Slate using the Layering Circles framelits.

The balloons were punched using the Balloon Bouquet punch in Calypso Coral and Pool Party cardstock and then embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder for a little texture.  The balloon strings are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.  Finally, I added the little hearts from the Subtles Enamel Shapes Collection to each balloon.

Isn’t the inside sentiment so cute?  This is also from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set and is so perfect for this card.
