Hot Air Balloon Birthday Greetings

Hello Crafty Friends,

Mary here today with a simple birthday shaker card using the Whispers Hot Air Balloon Birthday die.

I die cut my balloon from white card stock and colored it w/Copic markers.  To make the shaker balloon section, I used the die, to die cut a white craft foam piece... this gave me the dimension and sections I needed for the different color tiny sequin stars. I backed the shaker w/a small scale pattern paper and then attached the whole balloon element to a card front that I had already covered with a sky pattern paper.  I added a few stars and my card was done. 

Thanks for stopping bye today, leave me some feedback or links to your projects using some of our great dies.
