balloon birthday

We went to birthday party today for my nephew's son (yes, I'm a grand aunt :-)) who is turning 1 year old on Tuesday - so i needed a boy birthday card. Makes me think of primary colors ya know? Anyway I had a bit of the striped paper I used on a birthday card for one of my nephews in December (yes I have many nephews ranging in age from 35 to 6). So I thought I'd used that along with a Papertrey Ink set, Tiny Treats: Birthday. There are so many adorable stamps in this set but I finally chose the balloons cos it seemed to work well with the striped paper. I stamped the large green and white polka dot image with versamark and used white embossing powder. I colored the little balloons with colored pencils and a few markers. I am really looking forward to making a bunch of cards with this set - it has sooo many images for just about anyone on my list.
