Birthday RetroSketch

Popping in super quick this morning before I head off to work.  This card is for this week's RetroSketches challenge.  I love this simple sketch as it leaves the door open for a lot of possibilities - you can make it as CAS or complicated as you like.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye, the balloons are Sweet Stamp Shop and the sentiment is Hero Arts.  Have a lovely Friday!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Rose Red, Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Flowers from Quite Contrary Little Miss Muffet, Blue from Quite Contrary Little Boy Blue) My Mind's Eye
Stamps:  (Balloons from Scootin' By) Sweet Stamp Shop, (Sentiment from CL139) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
