Birthday Party Hat & Balloons

This card is very bright and shinny.  I made it following a sketch (of course).
The card is 6 1/2 by 5 inches,  The party hat and balloons are cut from the Celebrations cartridge.  The cuts were cut from glitter paper, the balloons I ran through the Cuttlebug with 3 different folders, then covered each with Diamond Glaze, pretty neat because the glitter shows through the Diamond Glaze.  I also covered the hat with Diamond Glaze and then added some bling to it.
I cut the "happy birthday" using the Create a Critter from the same glitter paper.
I glued it to the white square and then put matching brads on the corners.  Then I forgot that I wanted to run it through the Cuttlebug, so I thought well what the heck I will still run it through, so it embossed the happy birthday AND it also smashed the brads and left the embossing pattern on them.  That is how much pressure out little Cuttlebug's can put on things.  You can see it better in this picture.

I tied some cord around the bottom of the balloons then mounted them with different heights of pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by, i hope you enjoyed looking at my card and while you are hear take a look around my blog and I hope you find other cards you like.

I love it! Love the polka dot bg and those embossed balloons. I forget sometimes that I'm gonna emboss something, but have never just went ahead after putting it together. Love how you did the sentiment piece! :)
