Stampin Up Celebrate Today Birthday Card

I ordered this stamp set back in the spring because I wanted to use it for when my groups at McCalls would make birthday cards and I haven't used it for myself until now and I know I'm going to use it again because there are a lot of different things you can do with the stamps and  matching framelits.

Supplies Used:

Stampin Up products -
  Itty Bitty Banner stamps(retired)
  Baked Brown Sugar Ink
  Cherry Cobbler Ink 
  Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
Scenic Route - Sonoma paper
Paper Studio - Cloud Paper
Mounting Foam

The Celebrate Today stamp set has a couple of balloon stamps you can use but for this card I just used the framelits and cut out patterned paper for the balloons but I did use a stamp from the set for the basket. I did have to fussy cut the basket but it was worth it to get the great effect on the card. The sentiment that says "Happy Day" is from the Itty Bitty Banner stamp set that is now retired. The banner is from the Bitty Banner framelit set.

The bottom two balloons are attached directly to the card mat and the top balloon was pop dotted. I crinkled the banners a little so they would look more like they were waving in the wind.  I do wish I would have cut out more of the banners to add to the balloons but maybe next time because I'm not getting the back out of my box to redo them now.
