For the Viva la Verve! August week 3 sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers:
I turned the sketch on its head. The sentiment and balloons are from Verve's Birthday Surprise (http://shopverve.com/vv-08-033.html), another older set but new-to-me! I really need some additional birthday stamps. I tend to make everyday inspirational-type cards rather than for specific holidays or events. But let's face it, you can't be a card maker, make bunches of cards, and then not make someone a birthday card!! LOL.
Anyway, I used bright colorful papers from BG, colored the balloons with Copics, added some seam binding, Liquid Pearls and a tiny paper clip.
