Last time I tried to play along with Darnell's Twofer challenge I missed the deadline so this time I'm determined to get in there before it's too late!
WPlus9's Doodle Buds set has a few different flower shapes in it including this fun circle. On my first card I used it as it was intended as a flower. I thought, however, that it would also make a fun balloon so I created some bright and happy birthday balloons for the second card. I used some baker's twine for the string and added a fun, curly happy birthday sentiment.
