Happy Birthday Tanner!!

At noon today, Tanner will be 5 years old!!  He was our surprise blessing and has kept us on our toes!  I made this card for the Gypsy Challenge that ended 11-5.  The Challenge was:
Theme: Birthday, Thanksgiving or Christmas ~ Birthday
1 Weld ~ Balloon, 5, words
1 Word ~ You Are
1 Stretch ~ Balloon
1 Flip or rotate ~ You
2 Pieces of art ~ balloon & 5

I used Fabulous Finds for the shape of the card.  I sized and copied the square and hid the cut out on the second square.  I used Celebrations for the balloon.  I did not want the stars so I hid them with Hide Contour.  I used Don Juan for the 5 and Cuttin' Up for the words.

When making a window card, I put the pieces where I need them in order to weld in the frame ~ but before I weld, I make a copy.  This way the size is exact for the top layer.

Here is the paper I used.  Tanner wanted blue and purple on his card as these are his current favorite colors!

Here he is playing on the computer while I am crafting!

And here is the card all put together!
