Birthday Balloon

I hadn't been able to do much crafting & blogging in the the last couple of weeks as I had a lot to do at work. We've had our annual certification according to the Internation Food Standard (IFS) and there had been soo many things to prepare and to train the new staff members in our new department... So I hardly had any free time at all. :-( Anyways, we passed with a good result and that's the most important!

This card had been planned as a DT project for the current "Happy Birthday" challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog but I wasn't able to finish it on time... so I am just posting it here now...

Our sponsors over at Penny' Paper-Crafty Challenges are Squigglefly, EyeCandie Creations, Digital Delights & Karen's Doodles with digis and gift certificates for the lucky winners...
