Birthday Balloons

I needed to built up my stash of birthday cards so I created with the
stamp set, along with 
I stamped the sentiment first and then made a mask with a sticky note.
Next I stamped the balloons in primary colors.
The string and bow are individual stamps.
I think they are a great example of how fine our CTMH acrylic stamps can work.
The edge is patterned paper from the new Some Kinda Wonderful Paper.
Then I made another in pastel colors and used a strip of retired paper.
Reminded me of one of the very first stamp sets I ever purchased from CTMH about 30 years ago.  It was rubber and wood but had a similar heart balloon which I used over and over again.
So much fun and so useful with all these sentiments.

One of my first stamp sets had those heart balloons, too! How sweet! Love the masking you did with the sentiment in the center of the balloon strings. And the strips of patterned paper on the side add such a great pop of color and pattern!
