Beautiful Balloons

My first card today is one I made for my father-in-law's birthday.

I attached a piece of dark blue sky paper to the top of the card blank leaving a border around the edge.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from white hammer card and attached it across the bottom of the card, lining it up with the edge of the blue paper.  I die cut two balloons - one from mustard card and one from bronze metallic card.  I attached the mustard balloon directly onto the card and attached the bronze balloon over it using foam tape.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from mustard card and inlaid the letters in the the card.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' and Memory Bob 'Beautiful Balloons' dies
     Snippets of dark blue sky paper, mustard card, bronze metallic card and white hammer card

I am entering the following challenge:
