I started with a Crumb Cake card base--because that was the "safe" choice for me. I ran a Daffodil Delight panel through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing folder. I love those big polka dots--I think they make the card festive, which is what I want for a birthday card!
Next, I stamped the "happy" balloon from the "Celebrate Today" stamp set in Bermuda Bay onto a Whisper White piece. I stamped the solid balloon in Daffodil Delight onto a Whisper White piece, and then stamped the Bermuda Bay sprinkles on top of it. I cut out both of the balloons with the matching Balloon Framelit Dies.
For the sentiment, I stamped a banner and "birthday" from the "Thoughtful Banners" set in Crumb Cake onto a Crumb Cake scrap. I punched this out with the matching Duet Banner Punch. All the element are adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This quick and fun card would be great for a manly birthday.
