Balloon Celebration Birthday Card

It took me a while to get the colors for this card, my crafting table has some rejects still sitting on it.  I wanted to use the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper in the July Sale so that was my color palette.  I love the Soft Sea Foam but I had such a hard time picking which colors I was going to feature with it.  I like how it turned out though.
