Celebrate Today- Happy Birthday #5

Today's card is more on the masculine side with blues and greens. I know we all have more difficulty with cards for the guys in our lives but this one is pretty simple.  Take a look below and let me know what you think.

Start off with a 5"x5" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and fold in half to create the card base and then line up the scalloped square framelit just above the top edge of the card stock so as not to cut through it. Run this piece through the Big Shot ( any die cutting machine you have). You should have a scalloped edge on three sides and the top should open/close smoothly. Take the 3rd square framelit from the top and a piece of the Designer Series paper and run that through the Big Shot. Take a 1" strip of coordinating Designer Series paper and adhere to the middle of the square piece. Pop this panel up with dimensionals and adhere to the front of the card. Stamp the balloon on a piece of Whisper White card stock in Bermuda Bay ink and the word birthday (from the same stamp set) in Jet Black StazOn and the die cut with matching framelit on the Big Shot machine. Pop the balloon on dimensionals and place in the top right corner and then position some sequins coming down as a tail for the balloon.
For the inside of the card I took another square of the same Designer Series paper from the front and a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock (sponged with Bermuda Bay ink) and adhered the two together, then adhered to the inside of the card.
