Up, Up and Away with Cloudy Day Birthday Card

Today's card is a bright, cheery birthday card that I made for a Birthday Card Stamp Camp that never happened.  I was sick all week and had to cancel the class so I used some of the prepped cards for projects at my Stamp Club in February instead! Oops... I am busted, they weren't supposed to know!
So let me tell you what supplies I used on this lovely Happy Birthday card. 
8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Marina Mist Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4
5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White Cardstock with sentiment stamped in bottom right corner.  I used 4 markers to color the stamp starting with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Marina Mist. These colors coordinate with the piece of DSP I used on my card.
1 1/2 x 5 Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series paper (126922), with a flag cut snipped in the bottom of it
3 x 3 1/2 Whisper White Cardstock for cutting out Label Framelit, then run again thru Big Shot with the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder (127022), then used my Sponge Dauber (102892) dabbed in Marina Mist inkpad (126962) working gently over the embossed clouds and sponged around the edges of the Label shape.
I colored the basket stamp in with my Chocolate Chip Marker and stamped one, then the other making sure there was enough room between them so the two ballons did not touch.
Scrap Whisper White Cardstock for stamping the two hot air ballons in Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade and cut them out, finally I put a dimensional under each hot air ballon and placed them over the baskets.
I hope you enjoyed my card for today! I love to share them with you :)
