Let The Summer Celebrations Begin

In the months of July and August we have fourteen birthdays/anniversaries in our family.  That is not counting my siblings and good friends.  So the pressure is on to start making birthday cards (9 needed in July).

The Paper Sweetie balloons were stamped, colored with Copics, then cut out with the coordinating die.  I had to add a balloon though, because my grandson is turning 5.  The numeral is a sticker.
The clouds are cut out with MFT and Memory Box dies.  "Happy Birthday" is aSpellbinder die.
The sky is made with Ranger Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the"trees' are Ranger Twisted Citron Distress Oxide with streaks of pencil.
