Seize the Birthday - Weather Element

This time at Seize the Birthday our topping is Weather Element.....clouds, rain, sun.  Of course, if you don't want to do the topping it's always "Anything Goes" as long as it is for a birthday.

Here's my card

I used a wonderful set called Up & Away from Gina K. Designs.  I thought the balloons would be perfect for our topping.  I also used an embossing folder from Darice called Cloudy Sky and embossed both the white background and the blue cross-stitched circle.  The white clouds and the sun are from Reverse Confetti.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the wonderful cards the rest of the team have made.  I hope you will be inspired and play along with us.
