3D Hot Air Balloon Bday card

Created this 3D Birthday Card with a Hot Air Balloon theme. Used Cricut cartridge Artfully Sent to make the Hot Air Balloon Pop-Up on the inside of the card. Stamped craft lounge sentiment & cut out sentiment using a Simon Says Stitched Circle die.

Photographed outside since it is a nice sunny day here in Central TX. Early morn & evngs are cool temps of 40s - 50s and during day temps in 60s.The tree that card is in is a Mini Magnolia we have in our backyard. We also now have 2 more offshoots of this tree in our front yard thanks to birds taking & dropping the seeds. Hubby is going to transplant the
 trees in the front yard when he landscapes the front yard after removing a huge Oak tree that was over our water pipe.

Daisy, my dog, posed with the card after her walk this morn. Behind Daisy is the base of the Mini Magnolia Tree and BlueBonnets greening up. Planted 5 BlueBonnets over 5+  yrs ago and they have reseeded & rebloomed each Spring.
