Birthday with Balloons - CTO #31

Hello Everyone!!  It's time once again for another new challenge at Celebrate the Occasion.  This week our challenge is to create a birthday project with a balloon on it.  Those two go so well together, so easy peasy, right?
  I'm really excited about my project and the reason why is.... I got to use my IMAGINE,  imagine that!!  I purchased my machine in early July.  I swore I'd never get one of these, but was convinced, so I started bidding on Ebay and we ALL  know how that goes...  I won!!!  So to make a long story short, I had to send the machine back 3 times. I received the 4th and it  WORKS!!
This is the first project I've made with it.
 Recipe for this card:  -
  Best Friends Imagine cart- background paper, girl & balloons
  Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Border Punch  -  grass
  Fiskars Tag Squeeze punch-  tag
  Stampin Up  "Create a Cucake" stamp set  -   sentiment
  Stampin Up Dimensionals
  Stampin Up Black ink

Come join us in the challenge!  First, go check  out the rest of the Designers projects, you'll be inspired!
Happy Creating!!!
