High Flying Birthday

High Flying Birthday - The challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio is to make something song inspired. The song I chose was "Up, up and away in my beautiful balloon."

My card is a Joy card that is really 2 cards put together, one smaller than the other. My DP is kaleidoscope by MME. The tag is a punch out sheet that goes with the DP.
I used a balloon punch for the balloons and I used some embroidery floss for the strings on my balloons.
I used my Bow Easy to tie the bow on the tag and I put a tiny flower shaped gemstone in the bow's center.

My image is Flying Birthday Girl by Michelle Perkett. I colored it with Copics and used some Stickeds on her hem, ribbon sash and on the frosting. The flame is Studio G glitter.
