Up, Up and Away

I've been cranking out the birthday cards lately, i guess it's a good thing we all need birthday cards in our stash, right?

This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a super easy and fun sketch along with an AWESOME sponsor..  Saturated Canary.

Here is my card done up with Up, Up Away image from Saturated Canary:
For my card i flipped the sketch to make the image work.  I also fussy cut the image out and because i wasn't about to cut out each balloon string i substituted baker's twine..and i like the color it added to the card. Sentiment is from Magnolia Stamps.
