Up, Up, and Away...

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I'm back again.  I thought I'd share a birthday card I just made.  Once again I wasn't sure when I started how it was going to turn out, but I think it's pretty cute.

I used my Martha Stewart punch for the balloons, added some twine to them, and then popped a few of them up off the card.  Pretty cool, huh?  I used some star brads for the corner and ran the blue piece (white core paper) through my Cuttlebug then sanded it a bit. 

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

Totally Papercrafts - Spots & Stripes
Birthday Sundaes - Stars & Stripes Birthday
