Balloons and Sketch Challenge

I have my Card/Stamp group tomorrow.  This month we were to make Birthday Cards.
I used the Mojo Monday Challenge # 237 Sketch for my design.

I printed the background paper from the Berries and Cream Imagine cartridge. I cut it down for a 4.25 inch by 5.5 inch card.  I cut the "Happy" from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge at 1 inch.  The Shimmer yellow paper from PaperTrey Ink is cut at 1.25 inches X 5.5 inches.
The label is from the Art Nouveau cartridge page 29, the Layer 2 shift image flipped on it side and cut at 1.75 inches.  The "Birthday" is from my favorite Happy Birthday Stamp from Close To My Heart.  I placed scotch tape over the "Happy" and ink the stamp, then remove the tape and get a nice image of just the "Birthday".  I used Memento's Rose Bud ink for the phrase.
I added the balloons in the corner for the Bitten By the Bug2  Challenge-

They were cut from the Just A Note cartridge.  They are on page 46 and are under the Card Layer feature key.  I think they are cut at 3 inches.  Then I added the Polka Dots with a Stampin' Up Stamp  called Dot, Dot, Dot with the Memento Rose Bud Ink.

For the inside I stamped the phrase from a Stampin' Up Stamp from a set called Heard from the Heart.  I used the same Memento ink. 
 My favorite part of this project was the pretty paper that I printed with my Imagine.  I think I may could get addicted to printing the pretty papers!
I made 7 of these for my group tomorrow.  I hope they like them.

Thanks for coming by and y'all come back again soon,

  12. Why do you feel some women seek out out interactions with guys in jail,
    lots of them imprisoned for daily life? Brutal serial killers like the
    Night Stalker have had women seek out him out for a connection and achievable marriage.
    Why do some ladies do that? Could it be because they think they'll be needed in a drastic way by an imprisoned man, much more than a free guy?

  13. Fantastic 1 Mehdi....ever considering that I arrived to know about SL about 2 years in the past, I
    haven't seemed again at something else. Now granted I have not been consistent more than those two many years but SL is the only issue I did after i did it. I just in no way could get the best time of day nailed down to exactly where it benefited me probably the most. Now I have, and I'm viewing gains just over the previous thirty
    day period of Constant instruction. I preserve telling myself to become affected
    person and the rewards WILL come. I am slowly
    getting my nourishment in check, but it really is better than it was
    a month in the past. Many thanks Mehdi for this system!

  14. Yeah, I got some heart problems after i was using no xplode.
    Not confident if it had been related even though. Anyway, given that I switched to superpump I haven't had any difficulties.
    Your rating is interesting considering that a buddy of mine swears that nitric pure is by far the most effective bodybuilding health supplement he has used so significantly. Maybe I'll give it a try.

  17. Truly plain h2o also helps, as it fills your stomach a little
    and you really feel less hungry, but not to get a
    prolonged time unfortunately. Or often you might be dehydrated
    but you mistakenly think that you're hungry, in that situation drinking also helps. And i guess it is better to consume coconut drinking water than just a plain one, it is tastier and contains a lot of nutrients.
