Celebrate Today with Balloon Framelits using Global Design Project #024 Birthday Card with VIDEO

I am seeing a challenge on my team page to used balloons in a card for March and I got a jump ahead on my sample using the Global Design Project #024 Case the Designer

I started this card knowing I wanted to use Balloons and went to my Celebrate Today stamp set and matching Balloon Framelits that you buy as a bundle and save 15%. Next I looked through the Cherry On Top paper Stack and chose this pretty Pool Party pattern that mimicked the effect I wanted on the balloon. I then looked at the colours in the paper stack and decided to use Watermelon Wonder as my pop colour so I took a scrap and trimmed to to the desired sized and stamped the banner from the stamp set in Versamark Ink. Next I took the Happy and Birthday stamps and stamped then on a scrap of Whisper White in Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay. The solid balloon is stamped in Pool Party and the streamer and balloon accents are stamped in Bermuda Bay. I cut both these pieces out using the Balloon Framelits and Magnetic Plate with the Big Shot and set them aside. To finish the Watermelon Wonder piece I added 2 strips of the NEW Sale-a-Bration Metallic Glitter Tape to the top and bottom and added the Happy Birthday Piece. I adhered the patterned paper to a piece of Whisper White and then to a Tip Top Taupe card base. Added the Watermelon Wonder Piece and the balloon and streamer on top with Stampin' Dimensionals. To add the final finishing touch I added some silver sequins.
