Sketch Saturday #380

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by those fun characters from

I went all out with my card today which is for my brother's 60th birthday using Bugaboo's Frame It Balloon Boy and Frame It Balloon Girl.   I borrowed best matey, Julie's balloon dies when she was last down for a visit to cut my balloons and teamed some of them with parts of a Memory Box bow to get the longer tails.  

The numbers were cut using MFT Dienamics dies and the "happy" is from Papertrey ink as is the Let's Party tag.   I absolutely LOVE this pull-out tag although it was quite fiddly having to cut it out in black, orange, pink and blue and then piece it all back together.   I loved using all the brightly coloured design papers.

And here is Debra's wonderful sketch
Do drop by my lovely teamies' blogs and share some love and then scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
ABC - R is for Recipe (I used the middle block ribbon, dies, blue)
Crafty Creations - It takes Two
Hanna and Friends - Fave Stamp; and
Catch the Bug - Bingo (I used the bottom row paper piecing, 3d object and stripes),
