Birthday wishes

Hello! Here is my take on this weeks Less is More theme of Up, Up and away! As usual, kept it very clean and simple.

Birthday sentiment is from the mat stack 7 set from Papertrey, Ink. The balloon die is from PTI as well.

I up-cycled a Kleenex box to use for the balloons. I liked the graduated colors and cut the box apart so that I could use it for this. I did pop up the two outside balloons in different thicknesses of foam tape to give this a bit of dimension.

Bakers twine used to tie the balloons together.

I think this one is going into my masculine stash pile.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card, I always look at my Kleenex boxes and think how great the design would look on a card, glad I am not the only one! Have a good weekend!
