1 Trim a 13.5cm square of blue polka dot patterned paper and use the stitched square die to create the stitching around the border. Layer onto a 14.5cm square of floral patterned paper, then mount onto a white card blank.
2 Die cut two hot air balloons from various patterned papers, replace the paper strings with twine and adhere to the centre of the card with 3D foam pads. Cut out several clouds and fix to the background, ensuring one overlaps a balloon.   
3 Cut out a ‘happy birthday’ sentiment from floral patterned paper and brown craft card. Layer the sentiments together with 3D foam pads and attach to the greeting. Add pearls in each corner to finish.
