Happy Birthday Balloons

Good morning! Stopping by with another challenge card this morning!

For some reason this card was tough for me! I am happy with how it finally came out - but it took a bit of head-scratching to get it figured out! I started off by stamping the cute balloons from Lawn Fawn's Year Four stamp set. I added the musical notes from the same set, and colored the balloons with Copic markers, and added some Wink of Stella. That is where I ran into trouble - all my previous plans covered up too many of the balloons, and seemed like wasted effort for all that stamping and coloring! Finally found this stamp from Chit Chat that was a perfect fit! I stamped and heat embossed it in black 3 times, fussy cut out, and adhered with foam adhesive over the top of the balloons. PERFECT! Finished off with a card base of blue MFT cardstock.  

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
