Birthday Balloons

This image is what pushed me over the edge to get this set. I saw it used in a card made by Heather Nichols, and the idea seemed so simple and obvious that I was annoyed with myself for not seeing this potential earlier.  Really? That's it? That's all there is to it? I don't know why this seemed so much more okay than buttons (which I love and now have a ton of), but it did. And of course, I've used the set with buttons already and love that, too.  I guess I just needed a push, shove and a kick in the right direction. And just in case you can't tell what makes the balloons, I stamped my beloved polky dots on some cardstock, punched out circles and then covered them up with clear dome stickers. So easy and good for mass producing...which I did not remember to do this time. Darn my addled brain!

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits (PTI), Ink: Versamark & Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding & white (PTI), Bermuda Bay (SU!), Accessories: epoxy dome stickers, 1/2" circle punch

Love this idea. Also really glad you explained how you did the balloons, since I never would have figured that one out!
