I made a birthday card using Party Balloons from MFT.

I started by cutting out a few Party Balloons Die-namics from some Smooth White Card Stock.  I added the balloon strings in Black Licorice Ink and the popped up the balloons over a Pierced Oval STAX Die-namics.

There is much more inspiration for you!  Please hop on over and see what the fabulous Sweet Sunday Stampers have whipped up:
