Birthday Balloons

Hello, Janice here with you to share my latest card 

My card is 6" x 4" and I first cut the Happy Birthday on a small 
piece of purple card using the Die-Versions - Corner Concepts/Happy Birthday

Next I cut a piece of purple card to attach to the sentiment 
corner, and adhered to the card base.
Using a slighter smaller piece of white card, I ran it 
through my machine,using an embossing folder to add some 
texture, then attached it to the purple card, leaving a small border.

Using the Elizabeth Craft Designs - Balloons die, I cut three 
balloons in coloured card and three strings in silver mirri card. 
I then attached them to the card with glue and 3D foam pads. 
I covered the balloons with glossy accents to give them some shine
and added the tiny bow and purple gems to finish.

Here are the dies I have used:-
