Hi... thanks for popping by...
I started with an A4 white card, folded it in half to create an A5 card.
Blue card was used to make the frame, this is from one of the shadow boxes.  I added mounting foam to the back to give height.
I used a balloon punch and a star punch to add to the card and wrote 7 on the balloons also adding a small white line to highlight and attached strands of ribbon behind the balloons.
The letters and numbers were from a die set, cut out in white but for the name, Harry, I also cut the letters in black to give a shadow.
The console was from a picture in my stash and this had mounting foam added to the back and placed on the card. I also added a few silver stars around it.
Happy Birthday was embossed in black and a few more stars added around the sentiment

Hi.... thank you for popping by

I thought, for a change, I would post something completely different to the ongoing flurry of Christmas cards!
I also make and decorate celebration cakes (Sweet Celebration Tiers), actually it is my husband and I who make the celebration cakes (he has been trained so well :)).  Steve is a very clever and talented man and I am very limited to what I can do because of having rheumatoid arthritis from a very early age.  I do make all the sugar work and decorations and 'dress' the cake

Thank you for visiting

I always look forward to reading your comments
