Happy 90th!

 My dad has a milestone 90th birthday on the 15th, so as soon as I saw the sketch for the current CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge, I knew I wanted to stagger balloons for his card!
I used distress inks then hand drew the strings.  I stacked two happy die cuts on top of each other to give it more dimension.  Here is the inside of the card with number dies and fun sentiment from SU's Number of Years bundle.

After I photographed the inside, I decided to add a few more stamped balloons to brighten it up a bit.

STAMPS: Whole Lotta Happy (WPlus9), Number of Years (SU).
PAPER: Tropical Teal (PTI), Sour Apple (MFT), White, Black.
INK: Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers (Ranger distress inks).
ACCESSORIES: Stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs; Clear sequins; Happy Trio die by WPlus9.

Thanks for stopping by...I'll post some birthday photos after we celebrate with dad end of the month in Ohio.
