Skipping Stones Sketch 96

I follow the new sketches over at Skipping Stones every Tuesday, but I don't often get the chance to play along. But, this week I did!  I needed a birthday card and this sketch fit the bill!


Cardstock is SU!, patterned paper is Bohemia by My Mind's Eye.  The stamped balloon patterns are from Hero Arts, Memory Box and Red Lead, balloon punch is by Martha Stewart.  Used Mat Stack 1 from PTI to mount the balloons.  The birthday sentiment is unknown...got the stamp for $2.00 at a garage sale and there are no manufacturer markings at all on the wood.   Fiskars border punch and DMC pearl cotton colored with Copics.

Thanks for peeking!
