Birthday Balloons

Next Tuesday is my sister-in-law's birthday, and I wanted to make her a quick card this morning.  I really wanted to use the Balloon Kiddo stamp (from Stampendous), but he's a boy and she's a girl...so what to do?  Lightbulb!  I inked up Party Hat Kiddo and cut her head off (mwahahahahaha *evil laugh*) to turn the birthday boy into a birthday girl!

I added some Shaved Ice to the edge of "her" party hat, and to the little fluff balls.  I colored "her" with my Spectrum Noir markers.  My sentiment is from the most useful sentiment set in the history of stamps...Happy Messages.  Seriously - everyone should own this set!

You can get the pretty paper and all these stamps (and the Shaved Ice and the ink) over at i {heart} papers!  While you're there, check out the entire line of Stampendous fabulousness she has in stock!
