Balloon Fun Happy Birthday Card

Back in February, I created a few different cards using the Number of Years stamp set that's found in the Occasions Catalog. 
It's a super versatile set and one of the things I like doing with stamps like these is collaging them on one clear block to create a custom background stamp. 

Here's the third card I created using that technique:

And here's a pic of how I set up the collage on the clear block: 

Now that you've seen how the background was created, the rest of the card is pretty simple. 
Here's a few tips:
1) The balloons were punched from one piece of Perfectly Artistic Designer Paper with the Balloon Punch. I just turned a couple of them over to show the different color tone on the back. The Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen was used to highlight each balloon and I added them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
2) The balloon strings are made with a single piece of White Jute Ribbon. I cut the edge off one side of a 7" piece and pulled out the individual strings, adhering them to the back of each balloon with some Fast Fuse. I tied them all together with another strand and adhered them to the card front with a Glue Dot. 
3) The greeting was stamped a second time in Night of Navy ink on a scrap piece of paper. I trimmed it out with Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front, covering the Daffodil Delight image.
