Hot Air Balloon Birthday - The Friday Mashup #16

This week at The Friday Mashup here the challenge is to make a birthday card using the following colors:  Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand. I used the new stamp set "Up, Up & Away" to make 3D balloons.

Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Bring on the Cake, Inspired by Nature
Inks: Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand marker
Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, Whisper white
Accessories: Scallop oval punch, Always Artichoke seam binding, glue dots.

To make the 3D balloons, stamp 4 balloons in the same color and pattern.  Fold each one in half with the inked surface on the inside.  Glue the halves together.
