Balloon Bash Card for SB96

Hi everyone, for this weeks Stamping and Blogging sketch challenge I decided to use the Balloon Bash stamp set and Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  Here is my card for SB96.

I cut the background piece of Designer Series Paper down and used the left over pieces to create a little banner and also to make three of the little candles.  The candles were a little fiddly to roll, but I love the way they turned out.  I coloured the remaining two candles, clear embossed over the top of the candles, and then added some Crystal Effects to make them stand out a little more.  I finished the card off by inking up a small portion of one of the stamps from the Balloon Bash set to stamp the saying at the bottom of the card.
