Good morning! I'm back today as a guest designer with another card for the second half of Time Out Challenges with the theme 
 Birthdays with the optional Technique Twist of adding sponging.
My card today features images from the set Birthday Celebration by Simon Says Stamp. If you try to look for it I don't think they carry it anymore. The background was sponged with distress inks. After coloring the balloon and elephant with Prisma Colored Pencils, I carefully fussy cut them out. Thank god for dies! I added Wink of Stella to the balloon to give it a little shimmer. I should of added some to the party hat as well but didn't think of it at the time.
Thanks for looking!
