My sister's birthday was yesterday and I wanted to make her a card using two current stamping challenges. But in the end, it turned out to be a good masculine card so I'll save it for someone else.

My layout inspiration came from Mojo Monday #387 (MOJO387), and my palette came from Color Throwdown #332 (CTD332). The colors reminded me of the Fresh Prints DSP Stack from last year, which included Real Red, Coastal Cabana, and Crumb Cake. I threw in a little Night of Navy to finish it off.

I couldn't wait to use the fun new stamp set "Balloon Bash." How adorably snarky is the #yourewelcome?

Stampin' Dimensionals really take this card to the next level. I cut out both the banner and balloon and propped them up to create a little 3D interest.
