Birthday Balloons On The Loose

I love the look of the balloons on one of my cards so much that I could not resist creating another card with it but using a different design.  Also, I'm really enjoying Freshly Made Sketches Challenges and applying the sketches to my cards.  I had to put all this together in one card.  Of course, I had to add a pop-up element.
While I was creating my party hats, I thought I used my balloons again and follow Freshly Made Sketches #123 card design.

After cutting the balloons out with my Silhouette Cameo, I stamped the sentiment and bird from Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday stamp set.  I cut out the bird and placed it on the card with a glue dot. I laid a trail of glue for my balloon string before placing the pattern paper under the balloons.  All the pattern papers are from Pebbles and I placed them underneath the card after I placed the foam adhesive around the ballooons.  I tied a twine around the card and rounded the corners before placing it on the kraft card base. 

For the inside, I used pop-up birthday card from Silhouette Online Store but I removed the cake part.  Sometimes, I just want the sentiment and not necessary the whole thing so it was not hard to just remove the card part.  Now I have two different ways to use this birthday pop up.
