Happy Birthday -- balloons

1. One Layer Simplicity - "Attractive Opposites"  - my opposites are the rectangular shape filled with the oval balloons -- Also the small print "happy"  and the large cursive "birthday

2. CAS(E) this Sketch 104

3. NBUS Challenge #3 - hosted by Darnell at D J Kardkreations.  I've enjoyed following Darnell's blog for several years now. I am sure you will enjoy it too!

4. Seize the Birthday - the "topping" is "PARTY" -- balloons are certainly needed for a party!

The original concept for this card design came from Susan R at Simplicity.  She made this beautiful card.  Susan always gives great design tips.  

I also used this layout on two other cards that can be seen HERE .  I just looked at Susan's blog again... she has also used this design again-- take a look HERE.  

The balloon stamps are from PaperTrey Ink -- except the bows and "birthday" - I think are Avery Elle.

Christmas vacation is over.  Back to work today.  Luckily I really like my job.  Teaching life science to a bunch of 11 year olds is a hoot!  

As always, thanks for looking and your comments!  I hope you are having fun at your job too.
