"Happy Birthday" card by Melissa Bell
Supplies - Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye, BoBunny; Chalk Ink: ColorBox; Pop Dots: Recollections; Beading Wire: Cousin; Floss: DMC; Circle Cutters: Creative Memories, EK Success

This add-on sketch is so much fun! I loved making the balloons for my birthday card. I followed all of the measurements given for the sketch.

Variation #1 - I used beading wire for my balloon strings instead of hand stitching the string.
