Easy Colorful Birthday Cards

While thumbing through my stacks of paper, I ran across the Birthday Extravaganza stack from The Paper Studio. I decided to do a couple of birthday cards, letting the paper do most of the design work. I did cut out balloons in different colors using my Expression and the Celebrate With A Flourish cartridge. I chose four different colors of solid cardstock from The Paper Studio mat stack that coordinated with the Birthday Extravaganza paper.

On the first one I cut out the words "Happy Birthday" from one of the sheets, layered it onto the striped paper, then put on the balloons (pop dotting the 2nd and 4th ones). I then added a prima flower and within 5 minutes had a quick and easy birthday card!

For the second one, I used three different coordinating papers, the candles, the stripes, and the words. I then added the balloons, pop dotting them the same. Easy peasy!
