Dies R Us Inspiration - Belated Birthday Wishes

Welcome back friends!
 Today I'm sharing a belated birthday wishes card using product from the Dies R Us Store.  If you're anything like me, you need at least 1 or 2 of these cards in your stash.  Time goes by so fast that I seem to always be late with my birthday cards these days!  LOL

The dies I've used today are:

Paper Rose - Dies - Bunch Of Balloons

Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Sentiments Collection - Belated Birthday Wishes

Paper Rose - Dies - Stitched Rectangle Frames

I began my card by die cutting two white balloon panels
and gluing those together, then from scraps die cut just the balloon portion
of the die to do a little paper piecing.

Being sure to color my 'strings' before
gluing down my paper pieced balloons.

Next came the frame for my paper pieced balloon bunch.  Once again,
I've die cut two panels and glued them together for dimension.
I spotted a scrap of rainbow colored designer paper in my stash and thought
it would work nicely to showcase my balloon bunch.

So I adhered it to the back of my frame and cut off the excess.

My balloons have been popped up using Thermoweb 3d Foam Squares
Thermoweb - 3D Foam Squares - White .5" 88/Pkg

Did you notice the couple little extra stars?  They are the ones that popped out of the largest balloon in the die and I thought added a little extra coordination in my design.

I hope you've found inspiration from today's card!
