Birthday Wishes

Hello!  I thought it would be fun to make another card using this adorable mermaid from Your Next Stamp.  Yep, this is a mermaid, but I paper pieced a top for her, and put her tail behind this birthday sign : )  How versatile, huh?!  The sentiment is from Verve's Wishful Elegance and the dp is Cottage Wall DSP.  I used the Martha Stewart balloon punch for the balloons, and added some texture using my CB Swiss Dots Folder : )  Thank you so much for stopping by again!  I'm off to work on my daughter's birthday invites because I need to get them sent out!
