I have a sweet and simple birthday card for you today. If you are at all like me, you are often scrambling last minute for a birthday card. I love being able to create something fairly quickly, that also looks good.  I die-cut a handful of balloons from the new Birthday Balloons Die-namics in Smooth White card stock. I sponged each balloon with a different color of Distress Ink. I made sure to leave a little white spot on each one to show where the light reflects on the balloon.

I placed the balloons on the card and then drew in the strings with a black pencil. I added a simple Happy Birthday sentiment from the Essential Sentiments stamp set.

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the gorgeous creations the MFT Design Team has to share with you today.


  1. The way you colored these balloons, they look real. You did a great job on the highlighting.

  2. I love balloons! I think I have all of MFT's balloon stamps/dies.
    Your colors are beautiful!! Altho it's a simple card, it has a lot of impact!

  3. This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. husband birthday cards
