Birthday Balloons Stencil and Cards

Welcome Back,
Each new year, I create two dozen birthday cards to mail out to friends and family during the course of the year. I try to get a head start during my Christmas break. This year, I wanted to make a few balloon themed cards, but I have no balloon stamps or stencils. Thought "Bet I can create one with my cricut!" My husband helped me with some of the graphic design using inkscape and corel draw, but I did most of it myself:

I happen to have a pack of 3 blank stencil materials that a friend gave me, and I used two of the with this project. I did large and small balloons. 

Using my MISTI tool, and mass produced 8 cards that were very similar in design. I thought they came out pretty cute!  After stamping them all with the same "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" stamp, I realized, I need to purchase some more Birthday sentiment stamps!  LOL

I entered this card into a few challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Stamps: none
Stencil: Handmade - similar to other balloon stencils
Sentiment: SSS essential greetings
Paper: Neenah Solar White, black cardstock, SU cardstock
Ink: Distress Oxide Inks, SSS Black Ink

Thanks for dropping by!
