Birthday Balloons

This card entry is for 2 challenges.  The color challenge is from Color Throw Down & the sketch challenge is from retro sketches.

I began my creation on a piece of Basic Grey cardstock.  The first layer is Regal Rose and the second layer is an embossed piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The stamped images are from the Up, Up & Away stamp set, and are matted onto Kiwi Kiss.  I used Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss & Basic Black stamp pads.  The 'birthday wishes' sentiment is from the So Happy for You stamp set, that has been matted onto some Regal Rose patterened paper.
Here is the sketch and color combo:

Thank you for stopping by!
