Birthday Balloons

Quick and easy CAS card for today's challenge from SCS - "A Bright Kraft Colored Card"  - CAS133 (using Kraft paper plus bright or primary colors).  A great way to use up a few scraps too! :)
Here's a picture and the details of the card  - finished size is the standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  Hope you like.

"Birthday Balloons"

Stamps:  sentiment - Daisy Thanks (Stampendous)
Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White (SU!); scraps of DP
Ink:  Early Espresso
Accessories & Tools:  1 1/4" circle punch, 2-step owl punch, corner rounder, adhesives and dimensionals

* * * * *

I punched three circles out of scraps of DP.  I used one of the same DP scraps for the owl's vest.  Rest of the owl was punched in Early Espresso and Whisper White.

Stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and used the Stampin' Write marker to draw in the balloon strings and the owl's hand.

Popped up the blue and yellow balloons with dimensionals to add depth.  Rounded the bottom corners of the Crumb Cake cardstock and Riding Hood Red card base.
