    Later an orange patterned sheet from the 6x6 pad that cut at 3 5/8"x 5 5/8"

    Step 4

    Using a tag from the Tags and Pockets, glue it upside down towards the top center of the card.

    Step 5

    Using a chipboard frame from the Decorative Chipboard, glue it as pictured slightly to the right to peek out a bit from under the balloons and flowers that will be added.

    Step 6

    Cut out a large blue balloon a medium orange balloon and a small blue balloon from Balloon Bouquet 13x13 sheet. Use foam adhesive to adhere large balloon as pictured.

    Step 7

    Glue medium orange balloon down as pictured using foam adhesive.

    Step 8

    Cut out inspirational quote box from World's Fair 12x12 sheet and place as pictured, placing 2 flowers under opposite corners. Make sure Tag still peeks out from under bottom flower. Glue in place.

    Step 9

    Place a large orange flower to the left of quote box.

    Step 10

    Adhere small blue balloon onto the large orange flower. Add a small flower behind flower and balloon as pictured.

    Step 11

    At the bottom left corner of card, add a chipboard banner from the Decorative Chipboard. (Optional: add a Graphic 45 Ornate Brad to the chipboard piece before adhering.)

    For the card interior, cut an orange pattern sheet from the 6x6 to 3 7/8"x 5 7/8".

    Layer a 3 5/8"x 5 5/8" blue patterned sheet from the 6x6 pad.

    Step 14

    Layer a white cardstock piece cut at 3"x 5". Layer 'Create' tag from Tags & Pockets. Cut a balloon from Balloon Bouquet 12x12 sheet. Or as I later switched, cut flower cluster from Balloon Bouquet.

    Step 15

    Glue interior layers to card base and you're done!

    Step 16

    You can see the flower cluster I switched the balloon out for in the inside of the card :)
