This week it's a sketch challenge at the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog. I liked it as soon as I saw it and decided I must make a card. I've been busy for the last few days though and haven't had any inky time. I managed to finally get in my craft room today and stamp. Here is the sketch.
For the inside I used patterned papers to paper piece balloons and I added the lovely Happy Birthday sentiment from the Swirls and Curls Verses set. I also added a paper pieced balloon to the envelope flap but forgot to take a pic!
