Birthday Girl

 Looks like this is a week for making birthday cards, and a great excuse to pull out the balloon dies. This is the Balloon Coverup die by MFT, and I used sentiment stamps and the sentiment strip die by Taylored Expressions. The little bird die is by Spellbinders, and a few Nuvo Drop dots and white gel pen detail complete my design.
