Create Along With Us - January 2018

So happy Papertrey Ink is continuing their amazing challenges.  

Melissa's inspirational card
There are so many lovely creations, it's hard to choose just one for the challenge.   But, Melissa has inspired me with this beautiful card which I chose to CASE. 

Melissa is really the master of layering and her cards are always so gorgeous.  I tried to add some of the same elements on my card. 
My balloon dies are smaller so I used 5 instead of 3 and added a couple more sequins. :-)  
The corner bubble die plate is from Sizzix cut onto  PTI Stamper's Select White card stock.  I sponged some pastel colors along the edges and added PTI's Swoosh 'happy' stamp to  one of the Birthday Trio dies as my sentiment.
