Spring Colored Belated Birthday Card

I made this card for a very dear friend. Since her birthday is the day before spring (3/19), I decided to take out the 2013-2015 In Colors since they were such great spring colors.  As a side note, yesterday, 4/5, we had a snow storm -- where's the spring????  Anyway . . . .

The card base is Crisp Cantaloupe.  The next layer is Basic Black, and the DSP is from the retired Sweet Sorbet collection.  I stamped the balloons using the Celebrate Today stamp set and the coordinating framelits.  I stamped them in Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe. 
the polka dots on the Coastal Cabana balloon are embossed with white embossing powder.  The strings are Very Vanilla thick baker's twine.  The sentiment is from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set, and it was cut out using the Bitty Banners framelits.

Although the card stock and DSP for this card are all retired, you could make this card with any color combination  and it would still look great.  You can't go wrong with this stamp set!!!
