Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 68 - Birthday Balloon Bonanza

This week at Crafty Cardmakers our Hostess  is Mynnette
She says 'My birthday is May 13th, so I'd like to see some projects with balloon images!!! :) Any type of balloon will do - hot air balloon, helium balloon, balloon animal. And anything birthday will do, but I want a balloon on it :)
Again we have two fabulous sponsors.  First, The Stamp Man are offering a £10 voucher for their store.  And secondly, Di's Digi Downloads are offering a $10 gift voucher.

I decided to try a technique I had seen in one of the Technique Junkies newsletters.  First I put my DP (American Traditional Designs) on my card blank and added some faux stitching.  Next I stamped the large balloon, small balloon and birds using a stamp from Imagine That that came free with an issue of Craft Stamper in Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy directly onto the DP.  Then I punched out some circles of card and DP (adding some stars from the free stamp to one layer), folded each circle in half and then stuck them together before adding the whole lot to the balloon.  Lastly I added the little sentiment and some pearls.
