Here is my Birthday Balloon card........ 

For my card I have used a Gorjuss girl stamp from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with ProMarkers.To create the background, I hand drew some cloud shapes to make a stencil, I masked off the Gorjuss girl and then used my distress ink around the cloud stencil. My papers are from the Spring and New Arrival Forever Friends stacks.
