Birthday Balloons

Hello, friends! A very quick post from me to share a fun little birthday card for João (John in English) - an amazing young man who walks our dogs on week days. I've used Clearly Besotted stamps and dies. A few festive curls, twirls and stars from LF Party Animal also found their way onto this card.

I gave each balloon a generous coating of Clear Wink Of Stella, which ended up looking like white specks in the photo. The balloons are in João's favourite colours and I used VersaFine Satin Red, Imperial Purple and Spanish Moss. The birthday banner and extras are stamped with VersaFine Deep Lagoon.
