Seize the Birthday - Balloons

A birthday without balloons is like cake without ice cream. It can happen, but it is nice to have them.  Even just one is good, but I put lots on my card for this challenge at Seize the Birthday. 

That is what the toppings are for this challenge. 


If you're not a toppings kind of  person, can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

We have a new Surprise Party Quest for the next two months.  
Please welcome her. 
Her name is Lin and HERE is her blog Lin's Craft Corner.

Here is my card. 

DieNamics Stitched Mini Scalloped Rectangle Stax
Paper Trey Ink Scene It - Celebrate
Simon Says Stamps Hand Lettered Borders

Some of the balloons are stamped once and then I used second generation stamping for others. 
I am looking forward to seeing your fun Birthday cards using Balloons or not.

Don't forget to see what the rest of the TEAM has for your inspiration. 
Thanks for stopping in, I enjoy your comments.
