CC436-Birthdays and celebrations

I have had a need for LOTS of  birthday cards lately. I sell cards up at my hair salon, thanks to my awesome gal Caroline for suggesting I set up a basket. She says there's been requests for more birthday cards. I am trying to bulk up my supply, so you'll be seeing more birthday cards here. 
I used yesterday's color challenge (CC436) on SCS (bashful blue, marina mist, and calypso coral) and a Blueprints 1 sketch to make this card. I love those sketches, they really make card making THAT much easier. 

The font filled layer was created with repeatedly stamping a few of the words from Birthday Greetings in Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral inks. I do love those new Party Balloons Die-namics. I added one here that I first stamped with some polka dots from Darling dots. 

Have you seen the latest Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge?? I'm linking this one up. It certainly fits the Let's Celebrate Theme.
