Valentine Balloon

I'm back from my 'blog break'.  It was a much needed short break.  While sadly I didn't get much stamping done, I was able to get done what needed to get done around the house and with the family without the worry of a daily post, which is what threw me off last week.  I'm going to let you in on a little secret, 95% of my blog posts are pre-done and scheduled to post, days and sometimes weeks in advance.  When I was sick I fell behind, way behind on my blogging and stamping, last week was all about playing catch up and it wasn't going so well.  I was more worried about a daily post then other things, it was time for a quick priority check.  After 4 days off and getting things back on track I'm happy to say I think I'm back :)  PS don't get the flu, it stinks and pretty much ruined my entire January.
Today's card is kind of a unique one.  I have a circle cut through the entire card and in that cut out is a CUTE Valentine balloon.  I started with only the hole cut in the front of the card but once the front was complete the card wouldn't close.....there's a balloon I cut a hole in the back too.  This won't go in your standard envelope but I think this is one of those cards that need to be hand delivered anyway.   
I cut out 6 balloons in the Stacked With Love DSP.  I folded them all in half and attached them together.  I strung a piece of bakers twine through the center (before closing up my last side of the balloon).  The bakers twine is sandwiched between the Whisper White Cardstock and the Real Red Cardstock on the front of the card.  So it just kind of hangs in the circle. 
I was going to add the little basket from the set, but anyway that I did it just didn't look right.  Finally I just decided on a bow with some bakers twine to finish the bottom.  To complete the card I added my greeting and some sequins.  I love this card and what a sweet little Valentine!!!  See you on Monday!!!!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!
