Birthday Card

This week it was Matthew's birthday and this is the card that I created for him.
At first I think "oh my" what will I create and then all of a sudden it all falls into place.
I always find cards for men to be a bit more of a challenge.

The pattern is a354 and is available from Ann's Paper Art webshop.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 1061 & 5934.
The Hot Air Balloon is by Cheery Lyn B360.
Happy Birthday by LOTV which I stamped onto Nellie Snellen mfd008.
Ribbon, Hobbydots and Tim Holtz distress ink were also added.
Along the top of the card I have used a punch by Martha Stewart called 
"Scallop double dot" although you could use Nellie Snellen mfd023 as it is very similar.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look at my creation.
