Happy 18th Birthday

Happy Friday everyone.  I am back today with a birthday card I made for my son-in-law's brother.  He is a sweet guy who just turned 18.   Here are details of the card:

Size:  5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Card Stock:  Various, including Bazzill and American Crafts, my favs!
Balloons:  This is a new punch I found, made by Paper Studio.  Such a simple, easy way to make a birthday card.  I'm sure I will use it lots.  I used Baker's twine for the string.
The sentiment is by David Tutera from Joann's.
Stars:  McGill Punch
18:  Hippie Chick Cuttlebug font.
I also embossed my background using a Cuttlebug folder.
I punched several layers of cardstock in different colors using a border punch.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment!
