Hot Air Birthday (mojo254, cQc150)

Though I had surgery on my right hand, I;m working at becoming more adept using my left hand.  It's tricky, but I was determined to make a card last night.

The close up shows the dimension and layers.  I count 10 layers before it was all done. 

For the bit of yellow ribbon on the greeting, I didn't have that color, so I grabbed my Daffodil Delight marker and colored a piece of white ribbon.

The balloons were stamped by coloring on the stamp with SU markers and then stamping.

Here's the inside of the card,

This card was inspired by two challenges.
