Birthday Blessings

I've had these 3 balloons cut and glossed up for a few days now with a loss as to what to do with them. Finally today I decided to sit down and get this baby done! I decided on an easel card (I just love these!!!). I was also able to enter this in Birthday Sundaes Challenge #3 - Anything goes birthday.

The card itself is an odd shape but I wanted to make it to fit an envelope I had. Folded, the card is 5.5x4.25 in. I cut the balloons from Create a Critter at 3 inches. I stamped each of them with a stamp I had in my collection (I have no idea the brand), in the different ink colors. Then I loaded them with some glossy accents and let them dry overnight. Then I just used some bakers twine to tie them together.

I used 4 of my white flower eyelets (from Oriental Trading I believe) in the corners on the front of the card. It's hard to tell but I also added a ribbon to cover up the over lapping pink and blue glitter paper.

The sentiment is from George and Basic Shapes cut at 1.5 in and layered. The gift is from Stretch Your Imagination also cut at 1.5 in. Instead of cutting the bow layer for the present though, I used some blue stickles.
