Birthday Wishes cards

Good morning!  I have a couple of birthday cards to share with you today!

I based them on the Scrapbook Steals Monday Card Madness sketch - funny story about my take on this sketch!  As you can see, I only copied the sketch on the left side...for some reason, my printer printed the sketch really big and it only printed the left side!  I had no idea until I went to post this and added the sketch and saw that there was a whole other part to it that I didn't know about!  So that explains why you are only seeing the left side of the sketch represented on my cards!  ;-)

The balloons were cut from Simply Charmed cricut cart, the sentiment stamp is from The Stamps of Life 'birthday2celebrate', the patterned papers are all from the Recollections 'Bold Basics' stack, the cardstock and buttons from my stash and the twine is from The Twinery.

I popped the balloons up with pop dots, as you an see from the picture below, to make them look like they are flying off the card!  :-)

Just a simple piece of white cardstock, inked with yellow around the edges, on the inside where I can write my message!

Here's the 2nd card, just the patterned paper on the balloons and banner piece is different!

I'm entering these into a couple of challenges...
My Craft Spot Monday challenge #52: Make it Pop!
Scrapbook Steals Monday Card Madness #80

Enjoy your weekend!  We have a yummy pancake breakfast at my son's preschool this morning, can't wait for that!  :-)
