Fun with balloons

Do you find that when you pull out a stamp set you haven't used in a while, you want to keep using it? I did this birthday layout last night and liked the balloons so much I made a card with them! The layout is an adaptation of a sketch from Scrapbooks Etc magazine, but the colour scheme (aqua, granny smith green & kraft) is from If the shoe fits, scrap it. I didn't really have any kraft, I hope this is close enough. I'm noticing a lot of teal, aqua and turquoise in challenges lately, must be a summer thing!
I used Good Times and Atomic lower stamp sets, CTMH, the green paper is SEI, the tan is Stampin' Up and the aqua is Fancy Pants.

Since I was having so much fun with the balloons, I used them again on this card. I used the Unscripted Sketches layout again and the deep red, pumpkin, saffron, celery, blue and white colour scheme from Kwerner. I used Happy Birthday, Good Times and True Happiness stamp sets from CTMH and October Afternoon's Nightlife stamp set. Super simple card, but fun for a little person!
