So, as you can see,  I made a Mickey Mouse Birthday card! What do you think? Does it work? I used  the Balloon Bouquet Punch (which coordinates with the stamp set) and punched out Basic Gray Balloons. I then stamped the "dots" image and sponge daubed the balloons with Basic Black Ink. I left a tiny amount of Basic Gray cardstock showing as a highlight spot. This gives my balloons a very 3 dimensional look.

For the background I used the Sunburst Thinlits Die. I just got this die and I love it!  It's a lot of fun to create with. I mounted the sunburst onto Crushed Curry cardstock, which I stamped stars in Crushed Curry ink and coloured them in with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I then added a strip of washi tape from the It's My Party and Everyday Chic Washi Tape Bundles, and added my greeting. To finish it off, I added a few Bling, Bling, Rhinestones!

Well, that's it for me, up next is the Talented Shana Gaff's Blog! Enjoy the rest of the hop! Happy Creating!
