Another Birthday Card

Happy Birthday to my friend Heidi! Today is her special day, and she's already received this card, so I'm safe to post it now. This is a 5x7 card, done with a SNSS Rhubarb's balloons digi, and an awesome free digi sentiment from bluebirdflats. I used the labels ten dies from Spellbinders, edging them both with a silver paint pen before cutting. The balloons were embossed first, and then punched with a MS balloon punch which perfectly fits right over the image. I added some PTI enchanted evening card stock and ribbon along with some bashful blue card stock and an unknown piece of striped dsp from my stash. Both the upper and lower panels were embossed with CB embossing folders. The top was done with the birthday ef, but I'm not sure of the name of the one I used for the lower panel, sorry. The image was colored with Copics and sponged around the edges with Ranger tumbled glass ink while it was still in the die.
Happy Birthday Heidi - I hope you're having a fantastic day - even if you're shoveling tons of snow out there in snow country!

He is as cute as ever, Carol! We got lucky with the snow but I am not liking the freezing rain we are expecting tonight. Stay warm and pray for the power to stay on!

Carol, boy Heidi is a lucky girl to have you as a friend, just as am I. This card is so darling. I like everything about it. February is almost here and I'm waiting to see Heidi's February calendar soon. Enjoy your day.
