a birthday balloon...

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Rosemary here with another clean and simple card to share.  I seem to be in a clean and simple mood right now, lol!  This card uses one of the balloons from the Balloon Trio dies set and a sentiment from the Happy Birthday stamp set.  I'm going to be posting this to several challenge which I will list below.
I started by looking through all my patterned papers for a piece that didn't have polka dots and wasn't pink and found this yellow gingham.  I die cut the balloon and then used a piece of thin wire to create the string.  The white cardstock panel was die cut  with an AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die and then I embossed just the top portion with a dots embossing folder.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink and then I adhered the balloon.  Some Ranger Star Dust Stickles were randomly added to the little dots for a bit of sparkle.   I'm posting my card to the following challenges:  Less is More - use wire, AAA Cards - embossing and CAS(E) this Sketch - the layout out.  Going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - touchy, feely (add texture) since I have added texture with the embossing.

Love your gingham balloon with wire string. The neutral base works really well and the partial embossing was a fab idea.
