Hi Birthday Girl!

A quick post tonight (I guess it's actually early morning now!)  - I'm working at my church fair Friday and Saturday - 2 friends and I sell our cards and stamped crafts at a table each year at our fair - so I had to sneak this card in before I dropped into bed.

Unfortunately, my desk top computer finally died after letting me know for several weeks that it was not well (!) - I was kind of hoping it would heal itself - but no such luck! I was in total denial -  so I'm on my laptop where my Photoshop program has suddenly gone wonky and I can't use my watermarks or see my pictures as thumbnails -  so I'm just about tearing my hair out at this point......

But I did get this card done (sans watermark!) I made it for 4 different challenges -

the Hope You Can Cling To challenge on Split Coast -  to make a pink birthday card
the Free 4 All Challenge on Split Coast - to make a card for the HYCCT challenge (see above!)
the Queen for the Day Challenge - Claudia is the queen and my design is loosely based on her pretty  Pink and Green Floral card 
the Cas-ual Friday challenge - over the edge (my balloon extends over the edge)

I used a new toy on my card - the photo frame die is from Jillian Vance Design
The little girl and Birthday girl sentiment are from My Balloon set by MFT.
The 'Hi!' is from Free Spirit Sentiments by Waltzingmouse.
