Sunday July 8, 2018
 I needed to make a baby card and I kinda remembered a baby card similar to this one by someone.. I am so sorry.. All I remember was an animal an balloon and baby card.. So I used a fun designer paper for the background and then had this fun piece of scrap that just happened to mostly fit the Simon Says balloon die.. Thank goodness it was cut down to fit the card. LOL.  I foam mounted the balloon. I then stamped the My Favorite Things Hippo and colored with copics and used die to cut it out. I used Quick Quote chalk ink and just went around the edge of the balloon. I tied a piece of floss around balloon end and the hippos tail. I then die cut the SS congratulations out three times and layered together. I then used the shiny silver-ish card stock and cut congratulations one more time and added that to the top. I then laid it across the balloon it had to be at an angle cause it's so long. I typed out the "on your baby boy" and printed it out and punched it out using Stampin up punch . So this is a fun baby card for a boy..
