Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #68: Birthday Balloon Bonanza!

Well, hi!  I'm so excited to announce that I am the host of this fortnight's challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers!!!  Yesterday was my birthday, so I'd like to see some projects with balloon images!!! :) Any type of balloon will do - hot air balloon, helium balloon, balloon animal.  And anything birthday will do, but I want a balloon on it :)
We are sponsored this time by

We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their store.
$10 Gift Voucher

Here's my card~



I've used a digital balloon image from Bird House Stamps and water colored it in.  After coloring it, I dry embossed it and added some gold glimmer mist.  Patterned paper, butterflies, and bling, three of my favorites, finished off this card. :)

I do hope you'll come over and play along with us!  I have the hard choice of awarding winners, but I just KNOW all of you will make fabulous creations, so please make my job HARD!  And also, please pop over and see what my fellow Design Team Members have created--they have amazing talent!  Happy stamping!!! :)

Hi Mynnette sorry that my comment and birthday wishes are late. I really love your card, the water colours look lovely on the balloon and the dry embossing is one of my favourite designs, I think the butterflies and gems look lovely too.

I hope that you had a really lovely birthday.
