Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

I'm popping in quick to share with you a card I made for City Crafter.  We are to case Stella's card as seen above.  For some reason I have trouble making CAS cards.  I have to make things difficult for some!   After die cutting several balloons with coloring and stamping them, I stopped and started over for the final card.  But, I certainly wanted to enter the challenge for I do admire Stella's style and she is such a sweet lady!  Ok, so without any further delay.  Here is my card...

I thought I'd make it more simple and in blue with a touch of red.  And, I wanted to incorporate polka dots and a star.  I'm pleased with the final result.  Well, that's all for today.  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a great day!
