Sweet Birthday Wishes!

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap!
Can you believe it is almost May??? The month's are just flying by and before we know it, Mother's Day will be here!
I have a birthday card to share today using one of the featured colors for the month~
Such a beautiful mix of pink, blue and white!
Isn't this Bugaboo image just adorable? I knew she would look perfect with some Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine for her balloon string!
I started my card by printing the image 2 times and coloring it with my copic markers. I did paper piece her shirt, bow and heart on her jeans using the matching pattern paper from Carta Bella that I picked up in the Trendy Twine store HERE. Using my Tombow Aqua Mono Liquid glue, I attached the Bubblegum Taffy over where the balloon sting is in the image. The twine is actually under the balloon, I colored and cut another balloon from the  second image I printed and popped it up using some foam dots. I let the bottom of the balloon string hang loose and then to attach it to my card, I added some staples in a crisscross pattern. 
To finish my card off, I added some machine stitching to the border and the one side of the image mat, stamped my sentiment and then added some stickles to the balloon.

Supplies used:
Paper~ White, Blue, Carta Bella~Giddy Up
Stamps~  My Creative Time~Vintage Sentiments
Bugaboo Stamps~BBrat Girl balloon sitter
EmbellishmentsBubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine
