Happy 90th Birthday!

One of my neighbours is 90 next week - sadly he can't have visitors to celebrate with him and neither can he visit his wife in a local care home.  Another neighbour has arranged a fish and chip supper for him and we're all sending cards - celebrations will have to wait for a while.

I covered the top of the card blank with blue paper leaving a border around the edge.  I die cut the sentiment from white card and attached it to the lower edge, lining it up with the paper.  I attached the wood effect paper to white card to make it more robust before die cutting a hot air balloon, the inlaid pieces for the sentiment and a '90'.  I die cut another hot air balloon from green patterned card.    The brown balloon was attached above the sentiment with the green one attached above it with foam pads.  I inlaid the pieces into the sentiment and attached '90' to the green balloon.


To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday', 'Beautiful Balloon' and 'Classic Numbers' dies
     Snippets of Lili of the Valley 'Shabby Shack' and Papermania Capsule Elements 'Wood' papers, green pattered card and white hammer card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - May Challenge
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies - May Challenge
