Happy Birthday: Viva La Verve Sketch Recap!

Happy Friday!  I am popping in with another card for this month's Verve    Viva La Verve Sketch.

This card is just screaming with primary colors and patterns.  I needed  a male birthday card so I think this works.  I started out with some fun pattern papers from my stash.  I used Verve  Falling LeavesFlourised Tag,  and Starry Die die sets to create the balloons. For the main balloon I used Verve's Small Packages  stamp set to stamp the sentiment.

 Next, I die cut a few of the and Wavy Hearts  stars to embellish a few of the balloons with star accents.  I added some 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and frayed the edges for some added detailing.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

I am playing along with Seize the Birthday and Tic Tac Toe Challenge

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
