Birthday Balloons

A card I made for AnnaBelle Stamps latest sketch challenge, but didn't get to enter in time.  I printed the balloon digi onto coloured cardstock then cut out and popped up on foam tape with some twine.

I used:  Summertime dp freebie with magazine, AnnaBelle Stamps balloon digital stamp, AnnaBelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells hb stamp, twine from The Twinery, Spellbinders Mega Ovals die, QuicKutz Nesting Ovals die, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, foam tape.
