Make a wish

What's more festive than balloons, confetti and birthday wishes? In honor of the HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS Monday Challenge Blog's 3rd anniversary of the site, House Mouse and Friends design team is throwing a blog hop party and the theme is birthday and flowers. Be sure to check out the site for all of the blog hop details which include loads of prizes. You'll not want to miss out on it!
I tried something a little different for this card and actually stamped the sentiment on a balloon. I used Stazon black and it worked quite well without smudges. The air going out of the balloon is from some left over bridal flower stems I had on hand. I really wanted to go all out on the glitz and sparkles for this party card, so in addition to the floral spray crystals I added Rhinestones to the flower centers and a lot of stickles glitter to the confetti. The balloon is covered in clear dimensional glaze.
I'm off to the blog hop party and to view the other entries and party prizes. Come on and join the fun.
