Happy 13th Birthday

A very sweet young lady at my church was celebrating her birthday this weekend and it gave me the perfect opportunity to make a card!

I started with a center step card and used two KennyK images colored w/Copics. The papers are from my stash. I used a Paper Studio "balloon" punch and a Fiskars "cloud" punch. I used foam dots to raise the ballons and used bakers twine for the strings. Using glitter paper I cut "13" with the Cricut and Mickey Font cartridge. The sentiment is from an Anna Griffin. Finally I added a few stickers and bling to finish it off. I forgot to photograph the inside but I cut a small envelope with the Cricut and added $10. She was totally surprised and I could tell she loved it.
