Birthday Balloons... Sketch Saturday Week #309

Hello everyone!! :)

I'm back with my second Sketch Saturday GDT card... the sketch is a little more out of my typical comfort zone this time but I had fun with the card and am pleased with the end result... plus, it's another in the box that will be suitable for those oh-so-tricky men!! lol Here it is...

I went with my new Balloons die set for the main elements (Jen picked this up for me from the lovely Sally at Craft Mojo while she was at the Leigh show a few weeks ago... we allowed ourselves a teeny cheat on our papercrafts buying ban as she was going to be surrounded by stash all day... and I was very happy that Sally ahd a stall there for me to cheat with!! lol) and cut a sentiment out of them to keep the whole thing as simple as possible :)

I really like the bright, fun colours of this one an think it will do for male or female, young or old in the end :)
