Hello!  It's Bridget here with a clean and simple creation which would fit
 the bill for birthdays of any age or gender!
I've used the fabulous Birthday Word Art - I love the style of the
 text on this sentiment and this is one of those sets which 
you will reach for time and time again.
I recently saw Laura Bassen sponge some fabulous balloons
and knew I wanted to try it with a negative
die-cut of the balloon from Birthday Bash Dies.
Here Ranger Distress ink was used and by careful sponging, you can leave a
lighter bit on the ballons so that it gives the effect of translucence.
I then drew in the balloon strings with a pencil just to make sure
they were well placed, before going over that with a fine line black marker.
I added some black sequins and popped up the whole panel on a black 
card base.  It was so much fun making this card and I hope it conveys
a sense of birthday fun for the recipient!
Thanks for stopping by today!
