Birds and Balloons on Pink

Another bright birthday card with balloons, clouds, birds, and a party banner.  The balloon strings are slanting to look like a breeze is blowing.  The cotton crochet thread adds some nice texture.  I didn't leave space for a sentiment on the card front, so I'll write a birthday note on the inside.

Card details:

  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) berry sorbet (more of an orangey pink than my image), pure poppy (red), summer sunrise (yellow-orange), amethyst allure (purple), limeade ice (green), Hawaiian shores (turquoise), and stamper's select white.
  • Dies are PTI what the doodle: sun (clouds), PTI loop de loop, My Favorite Things party banner (retired), Avery Elle icon fill in the blank (balloon), and WPlus9 folk art florals (retired - birds). 
  • Thread is white DMC #5 perle cotton.
  • I used a Copic turquoise 0.5 multiliner to color the birds' eyes, and a white gel pen to draw across the balloon knots.
