MFTWSC122 - Happy Birthday!

May has officially begun which means my guest designer stint at My Favorite Things has officially begun as well!  AND today is Wednesday so there is a new Wednesday Stamp Club challenge ready for you to tackle!   

I am playing along with one of the stamp sets that released last month called WBD Cupcake Cutie!

I I decided to flip the sketch upside down to make it work with the balloon elements.   I stamped my image in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It blending card and colored my image with copics.  I used the circle STAX dies to do the "out of the box" technique."  I matted with hot fudge CS.  I layed the image over a die cut from the Decorative Doily.  I ran the kraft CS panel through the Big Shot in a Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder.  Ipaper pieced the balloons using PP from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Girl 6x6 paperppad.  I used foam dots to layer the balloons over one another and to create dimension and tied the balloons with natural jute to the doily.  

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
eyes - BV00
hair - E47, E37, E35, E53

Here is the inside of the card:

I stamped the sentiment in MFT hot fudge ink and added a strip of PP to tie in papers from one of the balloons from the front of the card.

Here's the sketch:
