Birthday Balloons...a gender neutral card

I always seem to need a birthday card that's either reeeeally general or at least gender neutral.  You can't go wrong with balloons right?  I recently purchased this awesome Echo Park paper pad "For the Record 2" (on sale over at Butterfly Reflections Ink) and it had some awesome blues, teals and about fabulous color combo!

Here it is...

Aveyr Elle Simply Said Happy Die, Avery Elle Storybook, Avery Elle Handwritten Notes,
Echo Park For the Record 2 paper pad, copics, glossy accents, Memento ink in Tuxedo Black

I'm loving that Avery Elle word die!  I was a little worried about how thin and tall it was, but it really is just a fun font! I die cut the word again in black to give a bit of shadow because the blue pattern paper didn't pop as much as I wanted it too against the yellow background.  I added glossy accents for fun to the balloons to enter in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Let's Be Clear

I was inspired by the recent CAS(E) this Sketch following this...

and since I used a word die will also enter the Moxie Fab World Challenge : Wonderful Words Challenge

Until next time...mahalo for stopping by!
