The Paper Shelter DT - Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!!  Today sees a brand new challenge theme over at The Paper Shelter and this week our theme is a nice and easy one - Happy Birthday.
For my card I have used the gorgeous little "Balloon Ride".  He's quite an oldy and sadly often overlooked but isn't he a cutie?!  The backing paper I have used is from the "Lovely Bugs" paper pack which I've matted onto coredinations cardstock.  The border is a doohickey die, the sentiment is by Personal Impressions, the swirl is a Marianne die, ribbon from my stash and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have coloured the little fella in with my Copics and added some Crafters Companion spray & sparkle to the balloon.  Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll join in the fun with us this week over at The Paper Shelter for a chance to win an awesome $30 voucher.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
