Best Birthday Wishes - Dies only

Hi everyone!  Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Day 7 challenge is to use Dies only-no stamps.  I thought this was going to be pretty tough for me, but when I looked through my dies I created this card pretty quickly and easily with no stamps.  :)

I created the background by scribbling on water color cardstock with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and spritzing with water to move and blend the colors.  I love using this technique.

I then die cut the balloons from white card stock and the sentiment from black.  The inside of the balloons were die cut and inlaid using silver glimmer paper.

I will be adding this over at Happy Little Stampers as well.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
