Birthday Balloons

I'm getting ready to go on a scrap weekend next week and have been trying to decide what to bring with. I know I want to make kids cards and masculine cards. Have been going through my papers and cutting some down to 6 x 6" or 6 x 12" to take with. I found these scraps found these 2 pieces of design paper and the green mat paper clipped together when I was sorting out some of the papers. Must have had an idea at one time to use them. The challenge over at Seize the Birthday was for a tall and skinny card this week. So here's what I came up with----

This is a 3 1/2" x 7" card. It's pretty simple, but so colorful, don't you think?
The papers are from American Crafts-Tea Party (this is an old pack, but the papers are so bright and colorful, perfect for kids cards). I stamped the balloons from Lil' Inker Designs 'Balloon Builders stamps  in  Momento Bahama Blue and Dandelion and SU Real Red and cut the out with the matching dies. The sentiment is cut from SU Real Red with a Sizzix die. 
Will also enter this in the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts #84-Birthday Wishes; & Sweet Stampin' Challenge-Children's Cards

Can hardly wait for next Friday when we will be off to Cedarville for a fun weekend! Yippee!
