We are very excited about the new Party Balloon Die
The full die cut is being showed in this card. I've added the Bird die cut and have stamped Happy Birthday in Razzle Berry ink.

CARD INSIDE

For the inside I have used one of the balloons from the Party Balloon die cut.
Happy and Day is shadowed by off setting one of the die cuts.


I had several balloon cuts left over that I ran through an embossing folder.
Happy Birthday has been stamped in the same Razzle Berry ink and I have used the candle die from the Cupcake set.

  25. Terrific re-piecing of the die... is that balloon with the bow puffy, or is it an optical illusion? It's terrific! Love the offset shadow on the inside sentiment, too!
