Blue Skies Hot Air Balloon Birthday Card

Hi everyone. It's June and time for another of my Monthly Card Classes. Here is the first card of three for my class to make.

I decided to play around with my Gel Press this month for the background. I try and keep it simple with little mess for my classes. 
FSJ's Gel Press is 8.5 x 11 in size, which is perfect for designing FOUR card bases at the same time.  I also used FSJ Liquid Colors and their fabul,ous 6" brayer. So much fun with this brayer with minimal lines.  

I used three FSJ Stamp Sets. The main image is from "Blue Skies", the trees from "Nature Grown" I also used the Happy Birthday and the flying birds for the June 2018 Bloom Box called "Set Sail".

All images are Heat embossed and the entire card is splattered with Sparkle Silk. The clouds are die cut and sponged with Pan Pastels. 

I used the Summer Pretties Punch to make the flower. This punch is retiring the end of this month. BUT, it's on sale for only $8.95 for those of you that would still like to pick up on it. Just click the link for it at the end of this post.
