Sequined Birthday Balloons

One sketch done two ways! My first take at this sketch, from CAS(E) this Sketch #84, is the card below. I wasn't thrilled with how the tails turned out, so I did take two, shown above! This time I popped up some of the balloons with 3D dots, doubled up the sentiment, and threw in a few sequins. I'm still uncertain how I feel about the recent sequin trend. I feel like rhinestones were more versatile, what do you think? I still have a large stash of them, so you'll continue to see rhinestones here and there, hehe- I just can't quite let go of them :) Oh yes! And before I forget, I was inspired by the colors over at Color Throwdown!

And I'll leave you today with an up close view of the second card :)
