Bday Balloon Cards

Created this Clean & Simple CAS trio set of birthday cards w/ tag attached using Hero Arts Operation Write Home 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamps for Hero Arts challenge #38 Game. Set. Match which is to create a new set of 3 or more cards that match exactly or coordinate by theme. I made 3 that match exactly.

Balloon theme is appropriate for Cuttlebug Mania challenge and I used my Sizzix BIGkick non-electric machine instead of my Tim Holtz Vagabond since challenge requires non-electric machines. I can cut multiple w/ TH and only one w/ Sizzix BIGkick but 3 is not many so I was good w/ conserving electricity.

machine: Sizzix BIGkick

   My Mind's Eye Fly a Kite "Genuine" Sky Paper scrapbooking paper,
