Wasn't happy - I am now

I wasn't really happy with my card entry for Less is More yesterday and although I liked the card I have to agree with Mandi and Chrissie that there wasn't enough white space. So while I should have been having an early night last night as I had to get up at 'silly' o'clock hour again today I managed to come up with a rough idea for another card. So when I got home this afternoon I put that idea onto a card and this time I am far happier with the end result.
I've used the balloon stamp from SU's Party This Way stamp set and inked it up first in Yoyo Yellow, masked this off and then used Real Red and Tempting Turquoise and then used another mask and stamped two more balloons in Pixie Pink and Orchid Opulence. The sentiment is stamped in Only Orange which is from a Hostess stamp set Happiest Birthday Wishes.
