75th Birthday

Happy Monday!  I'm popping in with a card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #9
I went straight through the middle, using Birthday, Sponging and White Space.
I did a little sponging of Peacock Feather distress ink onto the center of my card front and then added one of the frame elements from PTI's Pretty Frame Cover Plate.  The balloons are cut from colored card stock using PTI's Birthday Style set and sponged to add some shadow and dimension.  The strings on the balloons are cut using Lil' Inkers Balloon String Die.  The stamped sentiment is a combination of sets and the "75" was cut using a cricut.  Some sequins finish the card off.

I'm also adding this card to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
