A Clean, Simple & Quick One!

Good Morning! Today I'm sharing a clean, simple and quick card that I needed to make for my sister-in-law, Nikki. I also wanted to ink up my Paper Trey Ink stamp set "Everyday Button Bits" that has never seen ink before, so this was the perfect occasion. It was so much fun to play with and selecting which buttons to use for each balloon was fun, but challenging...LOL!

The papers are all (except one, from Paper Trey Ink Lemon Tart Cardstock) from a paper pad made by Martha Stewart called "Playful Blue Paper Pad"...all the papers were beautifully coordinated and complimenting, and you talk about easy when that happens! I'm lovin' that and need to see what Martha Stewart offers in that line. Okay, here's the deets!
