Birthday Card

Hello again. Phew, is it hot here in Texas, we got up to at least 101 today. Good thing I like the heat, just wish we would get some rain, we need it. I finally got some time to make some cards this week. This first one is a birthday card I made for my Daughters friend, her party is tomorrow. We have had a weekend full of birthdays, my son had one to go to today, but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the card I made.
The above card was very quick and simple, just the way I like them. LOL I used pink cs for the base. I stamped the balloon from Stampin Up's Crazy for Cupcakes in black Stazon on water color paper. I than colored them in using SU's water color pencils. Still trying to get the hang of using the aqua painters. I mounted the watercolor paper on to dark blue cardstock and adhered to the card base. I used SU's black marker and made the tiny dots all around the balloons. In the corners I attached some pink metal dots that I got at Joann's. Here is a close up of the tiny dots that I put around the balloons. Thanks for looking.
