LW Bday Pop-Dot Card

Made this Birthday Card using an SVG file, Birthday Pop-Dot Crad, by Lori Whitlock. You can click here to buy the file.

I used foam instead of pop-dots and like the dimension this card has. I recycled some cardboard & plastic wrap. Cut cardboard from a food pkg for back of present. Used colored plastic wrap for the balloons. I have had the color plastic wrap for some time when I use to use it for Easter baskets.
