Happy Birthday from all of us

O.K...so I'm wanting to do this birthday card for my dad...you know...try to get ahead of the game so I don't have to worry for his next birthday. I know....might be termed as being a bit anal, but what can I say. And ten to one when his birthday comes along I'll probably forget that I made it lol. So I'm looking around in all of my images and I come across this fabulous one from Bugaboo that would work for a card from my hubby, kids and me. It's one of their new scenic images and this was a wonderful freebie.
I wanted something bright and fun and I think that I managed that. The sentiments are my own (I'm so good with them aren't I? lol). I took some of the dp and cut out some of the balloons for the bottom portion and used small silver flatbacked balls for the strings on the balloons. The layout is a sketch from Wax Fruit Company. The sketch was for our last CDAC Sketch challenge.

The sentiment is from Splitcoast Stampers and the DP is from Create with TLC. Isn't the paper just the best? I added a blue and red flat backed pearl and a yellow rhinestone to finish it off.

Supplies:

CS - SU
DP - Create with TLC

Silver and Red flatback pearls - Recollections
Yellow Rhinestone - Recollections
Blue Flatback - from Theresa
Colored with Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms
