Who's Turning 3

As this card is for a three-year old, the original idea was to keep it simple.  However, The Muse got a little carried away and like Topsy, the card just grew . . .

Somewhere in the middle of the growth spurt, I realized that Memory Box’s Fresh Daisies die cut would make a great armature for balloons if I covered up the flower heads with some stamped, cut out balloons.  So that’s what I did, pop-dotting  the balloons for added dimension.  The flower stems became balloon strings which I painted black and glued over the Flower Boy’s right arm.  On another scrap of cardstock, I stamped and embossed just his right arm (yes, we’re talkin’ tiny here), cut it out, pop-dotted it and glued it over the balloon strings.  Magic!  At least until some very excited three-year old little fingers get a hold of it . . .
