CPS Day 2 Buttoned Birthday Card

CPS (Card Positioning System) Card Sketches is celebrating their 5th Anniversary with a challenge to make card using the previous patterns they select over 15 days. This is the 2nd sketch, CPS#166.

I made this card with my younger grandsons in mind. I placed clear buttons on the balloons to give them shine and dimension and decided the puppy's tummy needed one as well. This button in the middle technique was suggested by the creative challenge at Just Us Girls for this week.

6.5" x 5" Card:
Paper - Basic Grey "Life of the Party;" Close To My Heart Moonstruck, Colonial White, Cranberry CS and back side of Outdoor Denim textured cardstock (puppy and balloons)
Stamps - CTMH "A Birthday Wish"
Inks - CTMH Black, Moonstruck
Other - CTMH buttons, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist twine, 3" and 2.5" circle punches
