Happy birthday card MCS #48

 I really needed to make a boy birthday card for my nephew and I saw that My Craft Spot was hosting a "Manly Man" card challenge so I figured I would kill to birds with one stone. I was also trying to get this into another challenge to not use the cricut but when I missed that deadline I decided to add some balloons to the card. I went with the Smiley Cards cartridge. I used the hide contour button and took all the face cuts off so I just got the balloon shape and cut them at 2.25. The stamp and die cut around it are from Papertrey Ink. I love there stuff I just wish it was more affordable. The paper is from CTMH's miracle line that's retired now. I also used Sweet Leaf and Heavenly Blue ink for the stars on the balloons and Sky twine from Trendy Twine. The balloons and the frame around the sentiment are all pop dotted up.
