Yet another 'Balloon' birthday card

What can I say, the balloons in the "Up, Up and Away" stamp set are just so cheery it's difficult to stop using them.

I also used the "Sweet Cake" stamp set for the sentiment, which I think are great and very usable.

If you look at the lower section of the card, just above the sentiment, you will see the where I've used the Crimper to add some texture to the card.

The clouds are sooo cute!

I added 'colour' to the clouds by colouring them in with a Versa Marker pen.  This just gives them a slightly deeper colour.  A Versa Marker pen is a great way of doubling up your ink colours as, as you can see from my example, it makes very colour of cardstock you have look just that slightly bit darker.

Enjoy the rest of your day.... xx
