New Baby

I made a card for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #9 "Anything New". Mine is for a new baby. I'll also enter it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes".
Here it is:

Time for happy spring colors! I used the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set "Celebrate". First, I stamped all the fun balloons and the dots on the background. Then the sentiment. I added soft strings to the balloons with a pencil. Finally I adhered the panel to my cardbase and finished the card off with some sequins. I love stamping balloons, just can't get enough of them. In this case, I used pigment inks, starting with the lightest colors and ending with the darkest. They make the balloons look translucent, don't you think? I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, such a classy baby card. I just love the font on that "welcome". Think I saw your name as the lucky winner of the Papertrey giveaway for one of the release days - have you seen that? Like winning the lottery ;)
