Dotty Balloons

I made this card for my eldest son to give to a friend on her birthday, she is not a girly sort of girl so I thought the Simon Says Stamp Balloon Dies would be ideal.


I die cut the balloons from Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots papers and triple embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I used my Die-namics Fishtail Flag dies to cut the banners and the sentiment is from Clearly Bessotted.  The same papers and dies as my previous card HERE but a completely different look.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge 202 - Bright Colours
Polkadoodles Week 46 - Clean and Simple
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 237 - Birthday

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.
