Simple Birthday

I've been trying to spark some creativity, so I've been looking for sketches to design my cards. I saw a simple card sketch on Cricut Fanatics and decided to give it a try. I'm always trying to bulk up my birthday card stash, especially for boys, so I figured this was a great way to do it.

The balloon is cut from George and Basic Shapes and I added twine. I also put the balloon on foam tape for dimension. I added dark blue ribbon to finish it off.

Here is the inside of the card.
