Different Birthday Balloons


This b-day card is for my son-in-law David who is having a birthday this Saturday. Most of the items used to make this one are things from my stash. The 2 stamps, the balloon and the sentiment, are just "dollar" stamps I picked up at Michael's. But I really like the hot air balloon, especially for a guy's card. The unusual color combination is for a challenge I am entering this one in: http://ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.com/ -
"Color Combo- Orange, Blue, Whites and a Bit of Brown"
I am also participating in 2 other challenges:
http://craftycardmakers.blogspot.com/ - #68 "Birthday Balloon Bonanza"
http://dutchcardlovers.blogspot.com/ - #139 "Sketch by Angele"
